Getting Ready for the Book Sale

It's time to get ready for the Fall Book Sale!  Start rounding up all those books in your garages and basements and bring them in to the Library.  Then, buy a couple boxes to replace them come the book sale.  After all, a home just isn't a home without books.

The Fall Book Sale is tentatively scheduled for: 
Thursday, Sept 18
Friday, Sept 19
Saturday, Sept 20

All proceeds go to the Library Fund. If you can help, please call the Library or sign up at the Friends meeting.  We will need lots of volunteers.  And remember, book donations are always needed and appreciated!
