Gobble Up for the Holiday Used Book Sale and Donation site at Konkle Library in Montoursville
November 20 and 21, 2020
On Friday, November 20 & Saturday, November 21, 2020 the W. B. Konkle Memorial Friends of the Library continues with its Gobble Up for the Holiday Used Book Sale from 10AM-5PM (Friday) and 9AM-1PM (Saturday)
As active volunteers of the local Montoursville Library, the Friends of the Library have collected thousands of treasures to share at very reasonable prices, by the book or by the bag. An abundant selection of Children’s, Adult Fiction, Non-fiction, Romance, Mystery, Large Print Books, DVDs and Music CDs are available for sale (many Christmas themed books will be for sale).
This activity raises much needed funds to buy books, DVDs and other needed items for the Konkle Library and to support the Montoursville community. This fundraiser also provides huge financial support of the children’s reading programs hosted at the library all year long.
This is also the time to CLEAN OFF YOUR BOOKSHELVES and Donate New and Used books & DVD’s.

This service will be offered by appointment only and will be limited to 3 people at a time. Call the library to schedule a day and time.
The toys in the Children’s Room will be removed and some furniture throughout the library will be rearranged to maintain social distancing.
Hand sanitizer will be provided at “Sanitation Stations” throughout the library for use before and after browsing the books.
