The Friends of the Case Memorial Library will host a “Members Only” Book Sale open exclusively to members of the Friends on Saturday, Jan. 25 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. in the basement sale area of the Library.

This will give patrons a chance to beat some of the crowds and to browse at leisure through the many books, DVDs, and CDs on sale. The merchandise is organized by category on shelves and tables by a sorting committee that works year ’round to make this one of the best (possibly the best) organized book sale in the State of Connecticut.

Stop by to buy  for yourself or family and friends — all kinds of books are available — children’s, fiction, nonfiction, music, biography, art, architecture, history, how-to, health, poetry, classics, psychology — you name it — it’s probably there.
