The Little Falls Public Library is pleased to invite the local community to its annual Summer Booksale, the week of Monday, August 24th through Friday, August 28th. It will be held in the library’s back-of-building Community Room during the regular library hours of 9 AM to 8 PM, Monday through Thursday as a traditional book-by-book sale, Friday the 28th as a bag-sale to close out the fundraiser for the local institution. A wide variety of media will be available for purchase including oversize tomes, paperback and hardcover fiction, paperback and hardcover non-fiction, a large selection of kids’ books in all formats as well as DVD movies and more! Paperbacks will be priced at fifty-cents-a-piece while hardcover volumes and DVDs will be priced at a-dollar-a-piece. Turnover from the recent renovations has reshaped the library’s collection leaving unique opportunities of literary purchase for those who attend the sale.

Traditionally part of the city’s Canal Celebration, current events have changed the date and some of the circumstances of the book sale for the safety of patrons, library staff, and the community at large. A limited number of purchasers will be allowed in the library’s Community Room at any given time, facial masking will be required of all in attendance as well as a safe social distance between all in the room at a given time. What hasn’t changed is the chance to find great deals on some wonderful food for thought, books, and films to keep you company as the warm summer day slowly turn into cool autumn nights. Popular any time, this year’s particular unfolding may call for the comfort of a good book more than ever. At a great price and to help a great cause!

If you would prefer not to attend the sale in-person, we’ll shop for you! Send a list of titles or your favorite authors to littlefalls@midyork.org, and we’ll choose books on your behalf. You can pick them up and pay using our curbside service.

It will take place Monday, August 24th to Friday, August 28th, regular library hours, in the Little Falls Public Library’s Community Room at 10 Waverly Place, Little Falls. Payment by check or cash only, ending with a bag sale that final Friday. It benefits the operations of the Little Falls Public Library and its many community programs. Contact the library at 315-823-1542 or by its Facebook and webpages for further details or with further questions. The Little Falls Public Library’s staff and organization look forward to seeing you (at a safe social distance) there!
