Holiday Basket/Book Sale


Just before each holiday gift giving season, the Friends provide theme 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! The 2020 sale will begin with preview sales on Friday, November 13, from 6-8 p.m., and Saturday, November 14, from 7-9 a.m. Regular sales will begin when the library reopens on Monday, November 16, and run through December 30. The holiday sale books and baskets will be located on the large print book shelves across from the information desk.
