Summer Book Sale CANCELED

Canceled Book Sale

We are sorry to announce that the 2022 Friends Summer Book Sale is canceled due to unforeseen air and ventilation failures in our Public Meeting Room.  We are working hard to address the issues; however, due to supply chain and workforce shortages, a solution will not be immediate.  Please know that safety and library liability must be our main concerns.  We have exhausted all other options, which would be logistically impossible to execute for an event of this size. We apologize as we know many of you will be disappointed.  Please know that we are too.  Our plan right now is to hold a Winter Sale in February of 2023.  In the meantime, we cannot accept any materials donations.  We are full to capacity.  Thank you for your support and understanding.
