Friends of PAL Book Sale!

The Friends of the Penn Area Library will hold their Fall book sale on Friday, November 9, from 9am to 5pm, and Saturday, November 10, from 9am to 3pm.


The sale offers a wide range of hardcover and paperback books–including children’s books–and a great selection of jigsaw puzzles for all ages. Come and check out the sale–you never know what treasures you might find!

Items are priced to sell individually, or you can purchase “books by the bag.” Everything is a bargain, and all proceeds benefit the Library’s services and programs!

If you’d like to help at the book sale, please call the Library at 724-744-4414, ext. 101, to volunteer. Help is especially needed at 3pm on Thursday, November 8 for set-up, and on Saturday, November 10 at 3pm for packing unsold items.

Like new or gently used books in good condition are accepted year-round during regular library hours. Please, no textbooks, encyclopedias, VHS tapes, Reader’s Digest condensed books, as these items do not sell. Jigsaw puzzles and crafting magazines are also accepted.

Please call the Library in advance if you will need help bringing items into the building. Please do not leave donations outside.

Thanks for your support!
