Friends’ Fall Book Sale - October 26-28

This is a great place to find a bargain – books, CDs,DVDs , and paperbacks are all $1 each and kids' paperbacks are 2 for $1. There are also some great “specials” at the sale which include one free children's book for children in costume and for members of the Friends, it’s always buy three and get one free! Finally, Sunday is "Buy a Bag" day: all books sold by the bag-full. We provide the bag - you fill it up! Minimum donation $3 per bag. There will be a great raffle as well.
