Next On-Site Book Sale

Our next on-site Book Sale is targeted for spring 2023. This site will be updated after we firm up our plans and get closer to the date of the spring book sale.

In the meantime, please continue to donate books to help us prepare and stock up for the next on-site book sale. You can also purchase books on the ongoing shelf sale in the library and online.

As always, your continued efforts, support and contributions are fabulous and much appreciated!
