The John Graham Library in Newville will sponsor a plant sale from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday, May 5, according to the library.

The fundraiser will offer bedding plants from local greenhouses, as well as hundreds of plants from local gardens. The heritage plants will include a mixed variety of perennials, shrubs, ornamentals, trees, vines, bedding plants, wildflowers and bulbs.

Gourd bird houses, plant stands, painted furniture and garden art crafted by local artists will also be for sale. There will also be a selection of books on gardening and cookbooks available for purchase, and a special area will be set up for children to pot a flower for their Mother’s Day gift.

A bake sale will also be held, which will include ham and egg sandwiches. All proceeds of the event will go to support the library.
