A great selection of books for sale: fiction, non-fiction, craft and hobby, children’s books, puzzles and much more! Weather permitting, books will be available for viewing and purchase outdoors. Due to spacing guidelines from the state we will be enforcing spacing restrictions for those who view books inside the library. Be prepared for a wait time if things get busy inside the library because we will take time to sanitize. Remember to social distance. Mask wearing is required.
