NEW!!!
SIDEWALK SALE

SUNDAY, JULY 12 FROM 10 AM- 3 PM

The Friends of SCPL are trying something new during the COVID-19 crisis – a Sidewalk Sale.  We will be limiting this sale to biographies and fiction on Sunday, July 12 from 10 AM- 3 PM, with setup on Saturday, July 11 from 9-11:30 AM.  Scanning of bar codes will NOT be allowed before 2 PM.

Books will be $1.00 each.  $5.00 prepackaged bags filled with 4”x 7” paperback books (labeled by category) will also be for sale.  Bring your own bags.

We are instituting a number of measures to keep volunteers and customers safe.  The sale will be held outside.  The number of customers will be limited and directed to the taped off sale area.  Tables will be placed parallel to the windows, with 1 customer at a table at a time.  Crowd control volunteers will monitor the number of people entering and leaving the sale area and make sure customers have a face covering at all times and maintain social distancing.

If you’d like to volunteer at the Sidewalk Sale, contact Cheryl Nechamen at fscplvolunteer@gmail.com.  We need help bringing books down from the 2nd floor on Saturday, setting up on Sunday morning and volunteers to be cashiers, to help with crowd control and cleanup on Sunday.

The Friends sell books, DVDs, CDs and more  at their two bookstores, at semi-annual book sales on the library premises and online through Amazon.com and eBay.
