In honor of Teen Read Week, all teenagers may choose any one young adult or juvenile fiction book for free at this sale. Tables of newly-acquired fiction and non-fiction books are ready for perusal.

The children’s area has been replenished with books. Other tables have classics, westerns, large print books, DVDs and puzzles.

Hardback books are $1, paperbacks are 50 cents, DVDs are $2, and puzzles vary in price. All proceeds go toward the library for children’s, teens and adult programming.

Books are donated by the library and community members. Donations should be marked as going to the Friends.
