The Friends of the Kingston Public Library are pleased to sponsor a year round book sale cart.  We have recently added a second book cart with extra catagories.  Help your local Library by stopping by to browse for exciting new best-sellers, fresh copies of old favorites, children's books and dvds, and books on tape or cd.

Prices are hard to match: $1.00 hard covers, $0.50 paperbacks, $1.00 dvds and books on tape or cd. Children's books: $0.50 hardcover, paperback and board books $0.25, $1.00 dvds.  The cart is located near the Circulation Desk.  Happy shopping!

And don’t forget to donate your used books to the library. They will go into circulation if they’re new titles, or they will be set aside for one of the big semi annual book sales which will occur in early May and early October.
