The Friends of the Canton Public Library are launching a one-day Spring Book Sale on Saturday, April 12.  Hours for the sale are 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, but plan to come early for the best selection.

The sale will be smaller than the fall sale and will be held in Rooms B C and E on the main floor of the community center.  The quality of the items will be just as high as for the September sale, however, and items will be as well organized. Since profits are earmarked to help the teen area of the library, the Friends are anxious that the sale be a success.

The Spring Book Sale includes children’s books, which are always very popular with shoppers.  The sale will include hardcover fiction and non-fiction, most of which will sell for $2; trade paperbacks for $1.50; and mass market paperbacks for $1.  Music CD’s will sell for $2, and DVD’s and books on CD will sell for $3. Children’s paperbacks will be reasonably priced at $0.50, or 3/$1. There will not be a bag sale.

Canton Public Library is at 40 Dyer Avenue, Canton. For more information please call the library at (860) 693-5800, visit, or email
