Book Sale will be on Saturday, Oct. 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Community Room. We regret having to cancel the August book sale due to illnesses, but will be ready to display the voluminous selections of fiction and nonfiction, hardbacks ($1) and paperbacks (25 cents), plus CDs and videos. 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, donated to the Friends, each individually priced.
