 House Cleaning Bag Book Sale

Currently, we have an on-going book sale of items that have been pulled from our collection for lack of circulation.  Fill a paperbag with hardbacks, paperbacks, and videos for $5.00.  Don't miss out on this great bargain.  Stop in frequently to see what has been added.  Recently we weeded paperback romance and mystery, and childrens and young adult books.  There's still plenty of items from which to choose.
