June 16th is the Americus City Wide Yard Sale. The library will be having a book sale during our open hours, 9am to 12 pm (noon). All we ask is for a reasonable donation. Take 1 book, take a box, just give us what you think they are worth to you!
Libraries are supported by book mobiles and vans. Help support our library and our book van. Through out the year, we have 1,800 more books to be checked out, without having to buy them.
