Book Sale a HUGE Success

Today’s book sale was a HUGE SUCCESS! Today was sunny and business was brisk. We raised over $2000 for the library in 5 hours – a one-day record. THANK YOU to our wonderful volunteers and everyone who shopped the sale.

Jonquil Festival Book Sale is on for Sunday!

The annual Spring Jonquil Festival FOSL Book Sale was rained out today. Thanks to everyone who helped us setup and sell some of our inventory during the brief window between the storms this morning. We had a mad dash to get everything put away and managed to get the last book cart wheeled in before the storms returned. It will be sunny on Sunday and we are open from Noon to 5 PM. Our booth is located in front of the Smyrna Community Center. We lost a day of sales today so we need a big turn out on Sunday. Tons of great books will be available at great prices. Hope to see you then!
