Program Description

Event Details

The Big Book Sale is back! Stop by Central Library's meeting rooms, May 8-13, to stock up on books, CDs, DVDs, and more. The inventory includes withdrawn library items, and donations from the community. Get everything for a steal at rock bottom prices. Need to pick up some books to read on the beach or by the lake? We've got those! Need an audiobook on CD for your road trip? We've got those, too! 

All sales are final, and proceeds help support programming, and other initiatives at the library.
