Books 'On the Cheap' In Good and Hard Times

Friends of the East Hampon Library
Bargain hunters, book lovers, and a collector or two, regularly enjoy browsing the hundreds of used adult and children's fiction and nonfiction books in hardcover and paperback available at the Friends Book Store. Most books cost $2 or less; mass market paperbacks sell for a quarter. It's a great place to shop, save, and support the library all at the same time!

If you have ever donated to or purchased a book from the Friends Book Store, you've met any one of 25 volunteers who manage and maintain the enterprise. Book store volunteers include active older adults; moms and dads who work with their children as a way to teach volunteerism, and other folks who just like adding value to library services.

The book store's major movers and shakers are (l to r) Claire Spiess, Kendra Hough, Lucy Blair, and Harriet Nightingale (not pictured). Marlene Karavolis also volunteers her time managing the empty-full-empty-full popular paperback sale rack located in the library's lobby.

Thank a Friend Be a Friend!
