Monroe Free Library will host its 2021 Community Yard Sale on Saturday, Sept. 25, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This will be he first yard sale since the COVID-19 pandemic.

This also will be the 22nd community yard sale since the library began hosting them regularly in 2009 (there would be two yard sales each year when things were normal).

More than 35 vendors have signed on to participate, selling all manner of items from clothing to jewelry to toys to kitchen appliances and more.

The event will take place on the library’s adjacent property of 40 Millpond Parkway, which has been newly landscaped. Recently the site of a building demolition, the rolling lawn now shows no evidence of the old structure.

“I was excited to host the yard sale again,” said longtime Inter-Library Loan Clerk Joanne Movrich, “and now I get to do it in this beautiful new space.”

Movrich, who has been with Monroe Free Library since the 1980s, is the sole planner and organizer of the yard sale which normally occurs twice a year.

“We missed a bunch,” she said, referring to the pandemic. “I wanted to get to at least 25 yard sales before I retired, now I’m behind!”

All money collected from vendor registration supports the library. The yard sale will take place rain or shine.
