The Library thanks the wonderful Book Sale Volunteers who made the Fall Book Sale such an overwhelming success. More than 2,000 community members bought $28,000+ in books, CDs, DVDs, puzzles, and games. One of our best sales ever!
This event would not be possible without the support of our community: lunches for volunteers provided by the Ash family, and Double Decker Pizza; generous merchandise donations including the Granite Run Acme who provided our Monday $5 bags; the Department of Community Service; the Media Borough; local businesses who promote our event and provide parking; our dedicated volunteers and library staff, and many, many more.
The library is now accepting donations on the porch for the Spring Book Sale, April 27 – 29.
