On The Shelf by Paul 12/14/16

Issue 2016 – 16   Holiday Shopping
Books always make a wonderful gift (at any time of the year). The library currently has a lot of used books for sale. There is a cart of these books at the Yuba Gallery (next to the Yuba Theatre on Main Street), available whenever the Gallery is open. In addition, several boxes of used books are at the library, itself, and are available for picking through during library hours. The sales price is whatever a person feels the book is worth. All proceeds go to the library, to help to keep its collections current.

Book Share & Review Group
The group has one more meeting before 2016 comes to an end: Tuesday, December 20, 1:00 PM at the library. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the season, and come hear what books others have been reading — and, maybe, share some of your own. Perhaps some will share some of their favorite holiday season books. Everyone is welcome!
