Ye Olde Book Shoppe Sale


Get Prepared for Winter!

Stop in at the library on Saturday morning, Sept. 26 from 9:00 - 12:00 and visit our book store.  The back entrance into the bookstore will be open on this day.  We have so many books to choose from.  You can fill up a bag to take with you to be prepared for long, cold winter evenings.  Books are not priced individually.  We would appreciate a donation that will be used for our new Children's section in the library.  Once the book sale is over, you can continue to access the book store by making an appointment with Lois Walton during regular library hours.  

We are OPEN!
