Library to host biannual book sale in May

It's book sale time at the Ridgefield Library.

Every May and October, the Friends of the Ridgefield Library (FORL) run a sale of gently-used, donated books on the lower level of the library.

The proceeds pay for many programs the library could not offer otherwise, like the summer reading programs, author talks, folk music concerts, museum passes, and so much more.

"We have thousands of books on nearly every subject just waiting for a new home so come stock up on your beach reads, gift books, or try a new cook book," said Linda Massie, FORL publicity chairman. "If you can't make it to the sale, check our listings on Amazon —yes, we sell some books there too."

On May 10-12 there will be a sale of children's books only. Friday entry fee is $10 from 10 a.m. to noon for non FORL members, free after that for everyone.

On the following weekend there is a general sale, May 17-20. Friday fee is the same, free after noontime. Attendees can join the FORL and get in free, plus receive a coupon for $2 off purchases.

"Don't miss this opportunity to support the library and take advantage of the best bargains in town," said Massie.
