Holiday Book Sale

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.
Sale opens at noon on Nov. 26 and continues during regular library hours through Dec. 23. Library closed Thursday, Nov. 28 for Thanksgiving.
