BOOKS IN BLOOM - Spring Open House

Mark your calendar for a special event! The Friends of the North End Library (FONEL) invite you to see “Books in Bloom” during the North End Library’s Spring Open House from Wednesday April 1st at 5:00PM until Saturday, April 4th at 1:30PM.

Books in Bloom is a special springtime event that pairs floral arrangements inspired by the cover, title or content of a book. This year several local floral designers and volunteers will create floral interpretations of their favorite book which will be displayed throughout the North End Library. 

There will be a live demonstration by Roche Bros. Floral Designer, Michelle Clifford on Saturday April 4th from 12:30 - 1:30PM. She will give some clever ideas and demonstrate what to do at home with a store-bought bouquet. This is a creative and informative experience organized and generously funded by the Friends of the North End Library.

  • Drop in during the Spring Open House and walk at your leisure among the beautiful bouquets!
  • Attend an informal tour led by the Friends of the North End Library to acquaint you with our unique library and learn about the many excellent services the library has to offer. 
Books In Bloom will be open to the public from Wednesday April 1st at 5:00PM until Saturday, April 4th at 1:30PM during the usual library hours.

For more information concerning the Friends of the NE Library, please email: or go to our website: for membership information and a listing of other programs.
