When you open a new book, you’ll find yourself discovering a world of new characters, uncovering some great stories and maybe gathering much needed information.
Read A New Book Month is your opportunity to try a new author, read the manual to understand how that new electronic you purchased really works, or learn how you actually can make that meal in under 30 minutes. This month encourages you to enjoy as many books as you can. You could try to read a new book every week, and maybe trade books with friends and family throughout the month. Don’t let Read A New Book Month go by without discovering a new author!
Perhaps you will find just what you are looking for on the Friends of the Library Book Sale shelf. Hard bound, paperbacks and DVD’s are individually priced. There are also $1 bags of paperbacks and books. Magazines at the bottom are free to the public.

Your library is a center of your community!
