The Friends of the Ridgefield Library (FORL) will host its semi-annual used book sale next month.

The proceeds go to support programs the library would not be able to offer out of its regular operating budget, like the folk music series, author talks, and many more.

The sale begins Oct. 5-7 for children’s books. The general sale will be held Friday, Oct. 12, through Monday, Oct. 15. The library is located at 472 Main Street.

On both Fridays there is a $10 entry fee from 10 a.m. to noon for non-members of the FORL. Memberships will be available at the checkout tables.
