FOIL’s 35th Annual Used Book Sale is a GO! – Friends of Island Library is very pleased to announce that the annual Used Book Sale will be open, starting Wednesday, July 15th, through Labor Day,from 10 AM to 7 PM daily.
Masks are required for everyone including children. We must limit the number of people in the barn at one time to 3 individuals or 1 family. We will have hand sanitizer and gloves available at the door. The shelves are loaded and there is a great selection of books of all kinds, including a vast collection of cookbooks and also an amazing American history section. Stock up for the stay-at-home winter!
FOIL’s used book sale was started in 1986 when the library was in the house next to the Post Office. Donations were kept in the bathtub and the sale was conducted on blankets on the front lawn. When the library moved to the current location, the book sale was held in the old barn on the property, where we cobbled together whatever we found to make shelving – rustic at it’s best. Now, thanks to the community’s support, we have moved on to a bright new “barn” for the sale.
We continue to accept donations.
Library Update– The book return box is open 24/7. Returned materials will then be quarantined before being put back in circulation.
- During Phase 2, we are doing outdoor holds pickup! When you receive a notification that your holds are ready, please call us anytime during open hours at 7145. We’ll ask you which DAY and TIME you’d like to come pick up your holds. We’ll also ask you if you’d like BARN or STREET side pickup. On that day, we’ll check out your holds for you, put them in a bag, and set them out on a table for you to pick up.
