Elyse Kuhn, adding there will be pop-up shade for everyone’s comfort. The sale will offer gently used books donated by generous Ramonans. Come browse through the fiction, and non-fiction for your reading delights, and find reference books, how-to books, beautiful children’s books, cookbooks, all specially priced at $1 for hardbacks and 25 cents for paperbacks, and videos and CDs. The Collector’s Table holds special interest titled books and first editions at $5 and up. Be sure to see the artist’s private collection, recently donated to the Friends, each individually priced. All proceeds benefit our library programs.
