Friends of the Pember Library Book Sale:
We are currently having a weekly book sale, Saturday mornings from 10:00 AM -12:00 Noon and Wednesday from 5:00-7:00 PM. There are fiction books in hardcover and paperback, many non-fiction titles and all kinds of books for children. We fill up the shelves with new donations as they come in.
Most hardcovers are $1, trade paperbacks, $.50 and popular paperbacks $.25. Children’s books are $.10. Some titles are marked with special prices that are still way below what you would find on Amazon or eBay.
We have sold out of these cards.
