Mark Your Calendars for the Friends of PAL Book Sale!

The Friends of Penn Area Library will hold their used book sale on Friday, March 8th (9:00-5:00) and Saturday, March 9th (9:00-3:00). Items are priced to sell individually or “by the bag” for $5.00. Everything is a bargain, and all proceeds benefit the Library’s services and programs!

If you’d like to help at the sale, please call the Library at 724-744-4414 to volunteer. Help is especially needed on Thursday, March 7th at 3:00 for setup, and again on Saturday, March 9th at 3:00 to pack up the remaining books.

Donations for the Friends’ book sales (held in March, July, and November) are accepted throughout the year during regular library hours. Please do not leave donations outside. Popular fiction and nonfiction books in good condition are always needed; jigsaw puzzles and recent crafting magazines are welcomed. Please do not donate textbooks, encyclopedias, Readers Digest Condensed Books, VHS tapes, or old, musty books, as these items do not sell and must be discarded. Please call the library in advance if you need help bringing the items into the building.
