Book Donations Requested 

Literacy Volunteers Valley Shore is planning a big used book sale in May. They are looking for donations of books in good condition to put in the sale. Donations can be dropped off at the Literacy Volunteers office on the lower level of the Westbrook Public Library from 9 to 2 Monday through Thursday when the office is open. Drive around to the back of the building and you’ll see the office at the south end of the building.

The Book Sale will be Friday, May 4 from 9 to 5 and Saturday, May 5 from 9 to 3. The sale will be in the lower level of the library. Any questions call Literacy Volunteers at 860 399-0280 or email info@literacy.org
