Spring Used Book Sale
It's almost that time again!  This spring the library will hold its annual Used Book Sale, an end-of-year library tradition.  
Families donate used books they no longer wish to keep.  Each class visits the library and makes purchases with prices from 50 cents to one dollar.
Please help us by donating any books you may be thinking of discarding. All books may be dropped off at the library. The Used Book Sale will take place June 2, 3, and 4.

Upcoming Weekend Activities
