Well, folks, it’s Book Sale weekend in our fair area. First, there’s the Friends of Plumb Library sale, Saturday from 9-3 at the Congregational Church Fellowship Hall (11 Constitution Way, for your GPS). We’ve got a great selection of titles, plus some games and who-knows-what-all. There’s a Buck-a-Bag sale from 2-3. After that, there’s the Mattapoisett Library’s monthly book sale, just a hop, skip, and a jump down the road, on Barstow Street in Mattapoisett. For lunch, there’s the Apple-Peach Festival in Acushnet on Main Street. End your day at the Acushnet Library’s book sale (also ends at 3), down Main Street after the Town Hall. It’s supposed to be great weather, good day for a drive around, pick up some great bargains, and help three libraries at once. You can go home with your apples and peaches, read your new books, and feel good about yourself.
People ask us about the leftovers from book sales. For us, all of the childrens and teen titles, plus some paperbacks and all games and puzzles, will go to Gifts to Give in New Bedford. The other books will be taken to recycling by the town.
