Book Sale Continues

This year we received many generous donations for our annual book sale, held in July and August, so many in fact that we still have lots of books left over.  On nice days when the weather cooperates, we will have book carts on our porch, and on not-so-nice days, please come inside the library to see what we have for sale.  Books are available for the bargain price of 10 cents apiece.
