Thank you to everyone who visited this year's Giant Fall Book Sale!  Stay tuned for news on future book sale dates here on this page.


The Friends of the Library operates used book sales usually twice a year in the auditorium of the McLaughlin branch. Upcoming sales will be posted on the library website.

Throughout the year, a selection of used books and magazines for sale can be found at all four branches. Customers can choose a book and make a small donation to the Library through the Friends. No contribution is too small!
