List of Valuable and Attractive Books

Fall Book Sale 2013, held Nov 9-17 was a big success. Along with positive comments on the quality and quantity of the books, nearly $112,000 was raised.

Many thanks to everyone who has helped make this 2013 sale a successful venture. This includes not only the corps of volunteers who help throughout the year and the larger pool who help at the sale. Gratitude is also extended to the many people who donate such fabulous material in such great quantities and to all of our customers whose purchases help support the programs and projects of the library system.
