Book, DVD, and Audiobook Sale
June 30 - July 2, 2022:
June 30: Members Only
July 1: Open to the public
July 2: Public - Bag Sale ($2/bag)

In 2022, we are offering for the first time Audio Books on CD for sale.
There is also a larger supply of DVDs (movies) available than there has been the past couple years. The inventory of children and young adult books seems to be smaller than at previous sales, so come early for the best selection of those. But there is a large quantity of novels for adults on hand. And plenty of Christian, mystery and non fiction books.   
We hope to see you at the sale!

Don't miss the Extended Book Sale on the lower level of the LaGrange Library!
Books are restocked regularly, so there's always something new!
