Fall Used Book & Media Sale
Monday, October 13 - Saturday, October 18
A wide selection of used books will be available for purchase at prices a fraction of the original cost. Saturday is “Buck a Bag Day;” pay one dollar for as many books as you can fit in one plastic bag. Puzzles, which have always been a big seller in the past, are abundant this year. Why not expand your home libraries and help your local library out at the same time?
We are accepting donations of gently-used, current titles but please no textbooks, Readers Digest condensed books or magazines. Place your donations in the blue bin by the elevator when you enter the library’s Park Street door.
