We know you will find many great treasures at the Friends of the Library Annual Book Sale on from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The Friends have been working tirelessly to prepare for this year’s sale and there will be something for everyone, including many interesting and unique items in our bid room.
