In the basement we’ll be offering coffee-table books on art, popular culture, cooking, history and sports.  These volumes are in wonderful condition and are reasonably priced.   Our Bargain Book Table on the parking lot offers good quality books at only $1 each and we have several tables of paperbacks and children’s books at twenty-five cents each or 5/$1.00.

These sales offer high quality, slightly used books that are culled from our library shelves or donated, books that you’ll be proud to place in your own library or to give to friends and family.  So come early and come often to see what treasures you can find.  Proceeds from the Best Used Book Sales will be donated to the Sierra Made Public Library to support program and equipment needs.  The library is located at 440 W.
