Book sale on Saturday, March 9, 2024
from 10 am – 1 pm

Due to completion of the construction in the patio area, we are able to go back to using the back terrace to display many paperback books, standard & Blu-Ray DVDs, CDs and many other boxes of books available for your own selection.  Of course, as always, many more materials are available in the bookstore. 

Prices vary from 50 cents for paperbacks to $1 for hard back books, dvds, and cds.  Or make your own bag from these selections, $5 for members, $8 for nonmembers.

Credit card purchase available for purchases of over $5.00.  Masks are optional.
