2021 Book Sale Changes:
This year’s sale is in June when the public is finishing inoculations for the virus. We will be in a large confined space with distancing possible. There will be one entrance and one exit. There will be a check-out for Dealers as in the past. Customers, however, will take their books to one cashier to be tallied and pay and not to separate colored table cloth areas. Purchases can be made with cash,
check, or credit card. Credit card purchases will be available for all.
Volunteers are welcomed to help with this three day sale.
