The pandemic has prevented us from holding our traditional book sale events in 2020 and 2021. We hope to hold three big book sales in 2022!
The Friends hold three weekend-long book sales each year with thousands of books in all categories priced to sell quickly.
The Friday of each sale is members only.Non-members can join at the door. Saturday and Sunday are open to the public, including Sunday's bag sale.

Each year all Friends members are invited to attend
our Annual Membership Program & Lunch. This free event includes a brief annual meeting where you can hear about
the impact your membership makes on the Library. We also present the slate of Friends
