Used Book Sale and Donations:
Our fifth annual “End of Summer” book sale is over and it was very successful. We made $541.80 and had 284 people stop in the library to browse and buy. Keep those donations coming!

October is Mystery Month at the Library:
For the month of October we are having a special drawing for a “mystery prize.” Check out a book (any type of book – it doesn’t have to be a mystery, even though we have LOTS of those to choose from) and enter to win.
We will also have our “Borrow a DVD for FREE” promotion this month. What a deal!

Winter Hours:
Hours will vary this winter. We’ll be open Tuesday - Saturday, either from 9-4pm or 8-3pm. This is to accommodate Melissa’s hours (she has to pick up children from school). And no Thursday evenings.

Our Library and the Used Book Sale Are Famous:
Well, maybe a little famous – we were STARS of a great article in the Hometown section of the Press of Atlantic City. Joan was even featured on the front page of that section.
