Thank you to everyone who attended our book sale on January 14. We loved seeing familiar faces of those who have attended past sales, and “newbies” coming to their first Friends of Pinney Library Book Sale. We look forward to continuing this Friends tradition–watch this site for an upcoming announcement of 2023 sale dates!
