Spring 2023 A Success!

We Had a highly successful “Pre-Sale Sale” of CDs and DVDs in the hallway, record breaking Friday sales, near sell out of “Specials” and, most importantly, a raft of young readers stocking up, along with lots of grandparents buying books for grandkids. We had gross receipts of over $11,000 – an all time high!

Fall 2022


Spring 2022


Fall 2021

We had a huge sale in late September moving approximately 20,000 books, most through direct sales in over four days.

The books that didn’t sell we gave to Discover Books to deliver worldwide.

We hope to be able to accept new book donations soon.   Not yet, however.
