Fall is nearly here and you know what that means. The Friends of the Library Fall Book Sale is set for 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6. This big sale of thousands of books, DVDs, and CDs is held across the street from the library at the Clarks Summit United Methodist Church. The Friends Preview Sale is from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5 and is for paid members only. Members may join/rejoin that night prior to shopping. If you have books to donate, please hold them until after the sale as we have run out of storage space.
