Holiday Book Sale
Saturday, Dec. 1 through Sunday, Dec. 23 (Mondays through Thursdays, 10 – 8; Fridays 10 – 6; Saturdays, 10 – 5, Sundays 1- 5).
The library’s holiday book sale in the gallery is a seasonal delight. Bargains can be found – most of the items are new or like-new condition, making a terrific opportunity for holiday gift-giving. Items include books, unopened CDs and DVDs, children’s books and a huge assortment of art books. As items are sold, new ones appear daily, thanks to the hard-working book sale volunteers, who always seem to have an un-ending supply of tantalizing offerings. All sales support the library. Open during regular library hours through Dec. 23
