ESSEX — The Friends of Essex Library will hold a Spring Book Sale Saturday and Sunday, May 16 and 17, at the library at 33 West Ave. in Essex. The annual sale will provide funds for numerous special library programs and activities.

Dates and times for the Sale are Saturday, May 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, May 17, from 1 to 4 p.m. when all items will be half-priced.
The Sale will include carefully sorted books in good condition on nautical subjects, gardening, cooking, history, literature, art, travel, philosophy, science, nature, sports, self-help, foreign languages, and books in large print. There will be tables of fiction, children’s books, paperbacks, CDs, DVDs, and books on CD.
Specific information about the sale, including signed books and titles offered in the various categories, will be on the Essex Library website: www.youressexlibrary.org. Click on “Friends” and the “Book Sale” page.
