Thanks Elizabeth for adding the Friends of East Greenwich Free Library Meet & Greet (and book sale) to your 5 Things You Need to Know Today column. Tonight, there will be a great value on books: Hardcover $1.00 and Paperbacks .50! Plus, supporting our library and talking with Friends (old and new) makes for a lovely October evening!

When is the General Book Sale? And what kind of books can be donated??
Paulette Miller October 27, 2011 at 07:50 PM
The annual book sale is in the summer. Sometime in the spring, we will post a call for books on the library website. Almost all kinds of books are accepted. If you want to learn more about EG Library events, stop by at tonight's Meet & Greet (and book sale). Admission is free to members of The Friends of the LIbrary, but membership is available at the door ($10 individual and $20 family). There are many benefits to membership.
