  • Friends "Fill-A-Bag" Book Sale, Nov. 4 at 1:30 PM

The Friends of the Southborough Library use the proceeds earned from book sales to assist with funding programs for all ages at the library as well as our extensive selection of museum passes. In an effort to add to the funds raised we have decided to have another sale. 

       Everyone has a second chance to purchase plenty of wonderful books at the Friends Fill-A-Bag Book Sale on Saturday Nov. 4th  from 1:30-4:30pm inside the library in the Ella Eaton Meeting Room. We will provide large paper grocery bags with handles that you can fill with adult, teen, and children’s fiction and non-fiction books, DVD’s and CD’s for only $10. Bring the kids as there will also be one free book for every child!
