Our large semi-annual book sales are typically held twice a year, in the spring and the fall. We had to cancel our April and October 2020 sales due to COVID-19 restrictions. We have also cancelled our April 2021 sale, but hope to be able to hold a sale in October 2021.
During fall 2020, we held a series of small, genre-specific sales in the library's Gertrude Scott Meeting Room, and we plan to hold similar sales in spring 2021.
