Second annual Salisbury Art Stroll seeking participants

Town officials are issuing a call for artists to take part in the second Salisbury Art Stroll. According to Salisbury’s Assistant Town Planner Leah Hill, artists and fine crafters who would like to take part in the stroll, are urged to get an application.

The stroll takes place on the Old Eastern Marsh Trail on Saturday, May 17, beginning at 10 a.m. Artists and craftspeople set up booths along the trail to exhibit their wares or practice their skills as residents and visitors stroll by.

Applications are available at or at the Planning Office at Salisbury Town Hall, located at 5 Beach Road. For more information, contact Leah Hill, or 978-463-2266.


The staff at Salisbury Public Library, in preparation for the library’s upcoming move, reminds residents that they while the library is closed during the move, they may borrow materials at any library in the Merrimack Valley. According to Salisbury Library Director Terry Kyrios, a full list of libraries is available at the front desk.

Most libraries require that borrowers present their library cards in order to take put books or other material, Kyrios said. Residents who don’t have -- or can’t find -- their Salisbury library card should stop by and pick up a replacement in Salisbury during regular hours of operation, Monday through Thursday.

As a service to residents, Salisbury Library will be open on Saturday, March 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for any Salisbury resident needing a new card. Should it snow, that date will move to March 29.


The March Dinner Meeting of the Salisbury Chamber of Commerce will take place at Stripers Grill, on March 20, beginning at 6 p.m. Guest speakers will be state Sen. Kathleen O’Connor Ives, D-Newburyport, and state Rep. Michael Costello, D-Newburyport.

Tickets to the function are $25 per person, and those interested in attending should RSVP the chamber at 978-465-3581 by March 15.
