Book Sale!

Coming up this Saturday, August 27 will be the Friends of Maud Marks Library book sale. The kids are back to school and our Friends group is back at 10 AM with their book sale. As always, there is a large selection of hardback fiction and nonfiction. But don't forget about the children’s books and the paperbacks. All proceeds benefit the library and help to fund some of the great programs we offer. Then check our event calendar to see what we've got going on for the rest of August and in September.

A Big Thanks to Our Summer Volunteers and Partners!
