Holiday Basket/Book Sale

Just before each holiday gift giving season, the Friends provide themed gift baskets with books and related items, as well as book collections, autographed editions, classic old books, recently copyrighted newer used books and comic books. All of the books are donated by the public throughout the year, while the Friends volunteers add related items, assemble and gift wrap the baskets. We have something for everyone! There are over 200 themed baskets, with more added weekly throughout the sale. They are located on the center tables, and on top of the large print shelves near the information desk. The 2022 sale will continue through December 31.
