Bagged Book Sale
Saturday, September 19th from 10 am to 4 pm & Sunday, the 20th from 1-5 pm.
How does this sale work?
If you have been to previous sales, you know that the books are arranged by topic, genre or author. For this sale, bags in similar arrangements have already been filled for you.
Looking for books about gardening? We’ll have bags of gardening books. Do you enjoy mysteries? We have many bags filled with mysteries. If you need books for kids, we’ll have bags of those too! This is a “blind purchase” but that’s what makes it fun- you never know what you’ll get!
All sales are final, and books may not be returned to the library.
** Please note that the library is not currently accepting any donations. **
The bag sale will be held in the library’s Community Room. We ask that everyone enter the sale through the Parking Lot Doors. Once you’ve made your purchase, you will exit through the Community Room Doors. We look forward to seeing you at the sale!
** Please wear a mask and practice proper social distancing. Be prepared to have your temperature checked by a staff member.**
After the weekend, bags may be purchased at the Circulation Desk.

Bring your lunch to the virtual discussion of this month’s book:
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt. Cited as a “true-crime classic”, the book relates the murder of Danny and the trial of Jim Williams, a Savannah socialite in 1981. Filled with colorful characterizations and vivid descriptions, this engrossing travelogue and investigation serves up suspense and thrills, just in time for Halloween.
All ages from teens on up are welcome!
