“This annual Used Book Sale is very popular and greatly looked forward to,” said Library Director Mary Jean Jakubowski. “It is very helpful to us as a means of clearing titles and shelf space for the thousands of new materials we add every year to keep our collection up to date and meet community needs. We like to think these discarded and donated materials should have the opportunity to be adopted into good new homes.” The sale also includes books generously donated by members of the community.
