After a year of book sale cancellations, the Friends have finally been given the go ahead to sort donated books and once again conduct the popular Big Book Sale, scheduled for June15-17, 2021.
The library recently moved to “Chapter 4” in their reopening plan. While still in a phase of limited public service, this change does allow our volunteers to return into the Central Library building to sort books, and also allows us to hold a modified book sale.
Since our sorters can get back to work, the Friends can now start accepting book donations as of May 1, 2021. Please check out our Book Donation Page for information regarding the books we accept.
Due to the lingering effects of the pandemic, our upcoming Book Sale will have some restrictions. It will be shorter, lasting only three days instead of the usual six. To better control attendance, it will be held in an area of the Central Library’s main floor, instead of throughout the entire lower level. And since we haven’t been sorting books for the past year, the sale will be limited to books on hand, including a great selection of children and teen books, hardcover and paperback fiction, coffee table books, and some large print books. Check out our Book Sale Page for details on hours and pricing. The Library’s safety protocols will be in effect for the sale, including policies regarding masks and limited patrons to maintain distancing.
Please plan on coming to our June Big Book Sale - we so look forward to seeing you again!
