Used Book Sale


Thank you all for a wonderfully successful Fall Book Sale! The community participation was tremendous, and we had over 35 volunteers sorting and selling the books. We made more money for the library than ever and all of our books were either sold or given to worthwhile causes.

We are collecting books now for the Spring Book Sale, April 27th-30th. Please remember to only bring in books that are in saleable condition. FOL members help sort books Tuesday afternoons, 1-3.

The last day for donations for the Spring Book Sale is April 17th. Don’t forget us when you are cleaning out this weekend We figure we recycle at least one book for each person in Kent County every year!
