Over $2,000 in auction items to choose from, including spa services, restaurant gift cards, and certificates to local Newtown area businesses!

Lottery Tree

An additional raffle will take place the night of the Book Lovers Party for the Lottery Tree! Lottery tree raffle tickets are $1 per ticket or $5 for six tickets.


Please consider buying and donating lottery tickets to help us build this year’s Book Lovers Party Lottery Tree. In 2019, our lottery tree gave our lucky winner $210! If you can help, please put your tickets in an envelope to the attention of “Lottery Tree” and drop them at the library by Monday, February 12th. Be sure your name is on the envelope so you can be properly thanked.

The program committee is planning for the Book Lovers Party 2023 and we’re asking for your help!

Are you a business owner or know someone who is? Please consider becoming a sponsor for the Book Lovers Party!
