The Friends of the Library Bookshelf
This week the Bookshelf is featuring a nice selection of books on the Civil War. In addition to classic titles there are unusual reads as well, including some vintage finds.
Remember that the library welcomes donations of gently read books and magazines. Those that the library does not need come to the Bookshelf, with all the proceeds benefiting the library. Do not forget to visit the “back room” of the Bookshelf for newly stocked non-fiction and magazines.
Bookshelf hours are from 10:30-5:00 on weekdays and from 12:00-2:00 on Saturdays
