cancelledWe are sorry to announce that the annual Friends of the Library Book Sale has been cancelled for 2018. It was a difficult decision. As you may have already heard, Williston Central School is under renovations and not available for the sale. We had hoped to have a smaller sale in the library. However, we had to consider the safety of the book sale visitors, the security of the library building and collections, and demands on the staff time in our busiest season. The process of resetting the library, arranging for short term storage and pick up of remainders by a freight truck the next day while expecting over 100 people in attendance for a program alone was overwhelming.

The only donations we will accept this year are like-new condition books for children and teens, from now until June 15. These books will be used for summer reading prizes. We especially would like comics, graphic novels, nonfiction and young adult materials as well as regular fiction.

We greatly appreciate your understanding. We hope to see you at next year's sale.
