Falling to pieces and playing around

It's October, and that means it's time for our annual Puzzles and Games mini-sale!  Please stop by the library later this month to shop our selection of good condition, gently used puzzles and games.  We've looked in the boxes and verified there's plenty of fun left in each one!

Safely pursue world domination! (with original wooden pieces)
We restock as long as supplies last, but this is a VERY popular sale and supplies won't last long!  Hope we see you next week!

Our Fall Book Sale is Almost Here!

We believe it was Mark Twain who said, "Books! Books! They're what you need! The more you have, the more you read! The more you read, the more you know, so read a book, wherever you go!"

Fall is here and that means it's time for the Reston library to host the biggest used book sale in the universe. Since the beginning of time, no one has ever turned out on so many hovercraft for a sale of such unequivocal books. Our books are the biggest, the heaviest, and the most water repellent. They're really tremendous. They're packed with vitamins. They cure warts. A used book can be an effective weapon against malaria. All of our books are low in carbs and high in anti-oxidants. What are you waiting for?  Get ready to hop on our all-expense-paid monorail and come to our entirely hamster-powered book sale.  It's the greatest!**

** Note: Some of the above 'facts' may need checking.

Here are some real facts you can count on:
