Thank you Spring Donors!

Did you know local businesses help keep our volunteers well fed and well supplied during our book sales?  Their donations are literally our bread and butter -- and tape, and markers, and pizza, and pens.

Thank you to all of our corporate donors for donating food and materials to the Spring 2018 sale.  If you have a chance to patronize these local businesses, please do. And tell them FRRL said, "Thanks!"

Tis Spring, and our hearts turn to thoughts of... book sales


With apologies to Ms. Barrett-Browning, the Friends present a meditation on our love of the written word.

How do we love books? Let us count the ways….
We love them in any depth or breadth or height
We mourn when they are out of sight
For all they bring unto our days!

We love to find, on the level of any shelf,
A quiet read, for sun or candlelight.
We love them freely, as is our right.
We share them openly (or keep to our self!)

We love books with passion strong
But also, since first we read, a need -
To laugh, to travel, to learn through story and song.
Through books we see all the world, indeed;
And though we read books our whole life long
We shall but love them more, the more we read!

Join us at the Friends Spring Sale!  Come browse literally thousands of books in excellent used condition. Find the latest popular titles, classic favorites, rare, unexpected fiction and non-fiction. Prices $.50 and up. Visit Charly's Corner for featured hand-picked selections from all categories.
