The Medina Community Library has started a book sale this week at the library that will run through July or until the supply of donated, surplus or duplicate books, magazines and other materials offered for sale is depleted, officials said.
The library is selling paper bags with handles for $10 apiece, and shoppers can fill the bag with as many books and other sale items as they want for that one price, said library Director Alison Harbour. Items available for purchase include audio books, children’s books and DVDs.
Harbour said the library, located at 13948 Highway 16 North in Medina, is letting only two people at a time into the room where the sale materials are housed to abide by social distancing rules implemented as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The sale is going on during the library’s regular hours, which are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
Proceeds of the sale will benefit library operations.
The library has opened its doors to limited person-to-person contact since the state allowed libraries to begin operation again.
It also has resumed a limited amount of activities, which this week includes a meeting of the astronomy club on Thursday, June 25, and a meeting of the Medina Wordsmiths writing club on Tuesday, June 30. The astronomy club meeting will start at 7 p.m. and the writing club meeting at 3:30 p.m.
