Library Friends set upcoming book sales

The weather seems to have aligned itself with the season once again. At last the temperature doesn't seem so out of whack from what my calendar is telling me.
And so with spring in the air, I've been dreaming of taking my reading outside.
Since I'm in the market for some stacks to be piling next to the glider in my backyard to enjoy those warm weekend afternoons sure to come, I'll be hitting up some of these sales.
I'm sure it's no surprise that I'm a huge fan of Friends of the Library book sales. It's the confluence of many of my favorite things - helping libraries, finding books and saving money.
Here's some of the local sales coming up.
Hope to see you there!
