Crandall Library book sales will be back | Local

GLENS FALLS — With sales of popular books from the Crandall Public Library still suspended due to the pandemic, Friends of the Crandall Public Library will bring their book sales back to carts in the park later this month.

Four sales are planned at City Park throughout the summer, starting July 28. Proceeds from sales will benefit the library.

Additional sales are scheduled for August 11 and 25, as well as September 8, from noon to 4 p.m. No rain date is expected, according to a press release.

Fiction and non-fiction books will be on sale for $1. Children’s, youth and teen books can be purchased four for $1.

The Friends of Crandall Public Library will be accepting book donations during the sales. Donated items must be wrapped or boxed, and there is a limit of two packages per household.

All books related to business, IT, health, child care and education must be less than five years old. Magazines, encyclopedias, manuals, VHS records and tapes and cassettes will not be accepted.

Donated items should be used with care.

The library has increased its services in recent weeks after the state lifted most of its pandemic-related restrictions last month as vaccinations increased and the number of new COVID cases fell.

Patrons can browse the library from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Curbside pickup is still available by appointment on Tuesdays from 3-6 p.m. and Fridays from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
