On Saturday, October 1 and Sunday, October 2, 2016, we will hold our 44th annual fall book sale.

Thousands of books will be for sale in the Library's Community Room. Separate categories include fiction, non-fiction, youth, young adult, cookbooks, home, gardening and crafts, religion, reference, foreign language, travel, sports, science, the arts, CDs, and DVDs.

On Saturday, hard-cover books and trade paperbacks are priced at $1.00 and mass-market paperbacks are 50 cents each.

Also on Saturday at the book sale, you will have a chance to bid for one of the Library's old light post banners.
