Always-Open Book sale Displays

For patrons who just can’t get enough of the Friends of the Library book sales, or who miss the semi-annual sale, fear not! A selection of book sale items is always on display near the library’s front desk – and it’s open year-round (cash or check only)! All items are priced as marked.  As with the regular book sales, all proceeds benefit the Friends of the Library, a nonprofit organization whose fundraising activities help make many library programs possible.

 

Donations

Donations for the Used Book Sales are accepted throughout the year and can be left in the book sale donation bin, just inside the library’s front entrance.  We cannot accept moldy/mildewed books, encyclopedias or textbooks.
