It’s looking a bit busy out on the patio of the Ross Library. There are dragons there. There are also robots. And pirates, hurricanes, buried treasures, pets, buildings, and all sorts of other things.
And this week, they’re all for sale.
The Ross Library’s annual book sale begins Wednesday, September 14th when the library opens at nine AM. There will be a special preview night on Tuesday evening, which will not only have early sales on the books but also wine and refreshments. Tickets are on sale for twenty dollars at the library’s front desk, or by calling 570-748-3321.
The book sale will continue throughout the week, wrapping up on Saturday, September 17th at four PM. Friday is half price day and Saturday is bag day, when bags of books will cost five dollars. Nobody is going to be very picky about the size of the bag or how full it is; they’re all five dollars.
The annual book sale is always a worthwhile fundraiser for the Ross Library, and the more people who buy books, the better! You don’t need a library card to come and purchase books; it’s open to everyone. But if you don’t already have a library card, this week is a good time to get one.
September is Library Card Sign-Up Month, and during the month of September, anyone who gets a new library card will be given a five-dollar coupon for the book sale. So if you come in with an ID and a current address, you can get a library card, and then help the library by buying some books, and getting five dollars off any purchase.
There are thousands of books of all types to choose from. You can get a library card and get five dollars off. And you get to help the local library, which is always a good cause. What more is it going to take to get you in here?
