Our Book Sale Volunteers are working hard preparing for the Biggest and Best Book Sale Ever!

OVER 30,000 Items!!
Our SALE is not just Books, but Movies, Music
CD’s, Records, Games, and More…

We will need help from everyone to keep us all safe. No Masks, No Entry, and social distancing protocols will be in place. We are preparing to have the Book Sale throughout all floors of the library to give everyone more space. But many things will still be the same, Saturday, October 16, is our full price, full inventory day. Sunday, October 17, is our 1/2 price day, and Monday, October 18, is our $5 Bag Day.

We are NOT Accepting Donations until October 31st.
