Elting Library Seeks Vendors for Library Fair

Elting Library’s 64th Annual Library Fair will be held on Saturday, October 3.  There is a limited amount of space available for vendors from the community who would like to set up a booth at the Fair.

Over 1,000 people attend this community event every year.  It’s a place to see friends, make new friends, spend a few hours enjoying the early fall day, and make some unique purchases to support the Library. Elting is looking for vendors who sell goods with price points below $100 that can be bagged and carried home that day.

Vendors are responsible for securing any necessary permits and licenses and cannot sell books as their primary item.  Available spaces are 10 x 10.  Applications will be reviewed by the Fair Committee.

The Fair is held behind the Library at the corner of North Front and Church Streets in downtown New Paltz.  Those interested in becoming a vendor can find the application on the library’s website: Click on Elting Events and then Library Fair. Or pick application up at the Library Elting Memorial Library, 93 Main Street, New Paltz, NY 12561.
