The used book sale will include hard-bound, paperback and some children’s books. There also will be a limited number of VHS, DVDs and books on tape.

Memberships to the Friends of the Library will be available at the preview.

Nine local artisans will be selling handcrafted items such as handmade bookmarks, coin jewelry, woodworks, musical instruments and hand-dyed fabrics. Proceeds will benefit the library.
