Used Book Sale

Fall Book Sale – Nov 16-19

We have an extraordinary number of books for our Fall Book Sale this year. The dates are November 16th-19th. Thursday, November 16th is Members Night, with a first look time and snacks to keep everyone happy. Regular times Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and the Box Day Finale, Sunday, November 19th. Please put the days on your calendar.

If you have books to donate, now is the time.

We are looking forward to a fantastic sale this year.

We are presently looking for some one to help with our online book sales. We will soon have a couple openings on our FOL Board. If you are interested in either please contact saunderscynthia@gmail.com

Due to the enormous contributions of used books from our patrons, the Friends of the Library are temporarily maxxed out on storage space and cannot accept any further donations until December 1, 2017.

If you are in a time sensitive situation and need to dispose of books quickly, please take them to the blue Discover Books bins next to the recycling bins in Worton or in Queen Anne’s county location just past Caldwell’s, the car wash, etc.
