Friends of the Library Book Sale

Do you have books you’d like to donate to the Friends of the Library Book Sale? Or maybe you have some free time on Wednesday mornings or Thursday afternoons to help sort the books? The Friends of the Library are always looking for extra hands!

Book donations can be brought to the former RN Johnson’s bays 14 & 15 Wednesday mornings from 9am to 10am or Thursday afternoons from 3pm to 4pm. This is also when the Friends sort the books, and they’d love some extra help!

Do these times not work for you? Give us a call at the library and we’d be happy to get you in touch with one of the Friends members to set up another drop off time!

Save the Date! The book sale will take place October 28th-30th!
