Hi Kelly!
So here in Waterville, we do set up through the summer months at the Farmer's Market. We carry a canopy (Coleman basic), camping chairs, hats, and sunscreen. Also, I have beach mats that I put down for the children to sit on during program time. As we set up with our community partners, we coordinate books with art projects that will complement each other. Also, I use this opportunity to give away gently used donated or withdrawn books to the community.
We cancel if there is rain.

I hope that this helps!

Subject: [MELIBS-L] Farmer's Market presence

Good afternoon, all.

I am looking to establish a library presence at our local farmer's market.
For those of you who have traveled this road, what good advice can you give
me. I am curious about cost, what your setup looks like, whether you use it
as a mobile library (to circulate materials) or just an informational
booth, dos and don'ts, and anything in between. Are you there weekly,
monthly, etc.? All information is good information.

Thank you!
