We know how it is - you live for the last weekend in February when you can buy all the books you want for practically nothing at the annual Friends of the Library Sale (save the date - February 25-26, 2017). You buy all the books you can carry out of the fairgrounds, hoping they last you all year. We do the same thing.!
But what happens when you’ve participated in Summer Reading and read everything you bought at the sale? You can always download or check out more books at the library. Or...why not buy your very own copies to keep, at the Friends of the Library Buy the Box Sale!
