Used Book Sale
Got books? The Judge George W. Armstrong Library does, and they’re priced just right for you! Come on in and check out some great deals on used books in our ongoing book sale. Adult books, including fiction, nonfiction, biographies, and large print, are all priced at a very affordable $1.00 each. We also have plenty of paperbacks and older children’s books priced at $.50 each. All proceeds from the book sale go to the Friends of Armstrong Library. The Friends then help fund programming, collections, and other special needs for the library.
We have an ongoing book sale, so you can stop by any time. The book sales are filled with materials removed from the library collection or from donations from community residents, so the content changes quite often.
Consider recycling your reads and donating them to the library for the book sale! We welcome your donations, but do not accept encyclopedias, textbooks, or magazines. Your support, either in purchasing books or donating them for the sale, would be most welcome.
