2014 Book Sale

Our three day annual book sale starts this Thursday night! Gain admission to the Early Bird Special starting at 6:00pm by giving a small donation to the library, then get a sneak peak at all the goodies that have been donated - books, audiobooks, movies, games, puzzles. So much fun stuff - and you can buy it before anyone else does!
Then the sale will continue on Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm. And of course the big push on Saturday from 8:00am to 4:00pm - the sale will be closed during the parade.
