Montoursville Konkle Library
Beach Reading Used Book Sale

June 19th, July 24th, August 21st

The Friends of W. B. Memorial Konkle Library in Montoursville are hosting their Beach Reading Used Book Sales on Saturday, June 19th, July 24th and August 21st.

Did you know there are more books sold in the summer than during any other season? We all like to relax and get away in a good book, whether it is on the Beach or your back patio. It’s time to refresh your stacks of books and find some great beach reading books. You’ll find it easy to browse shelves filled with novels, mysteries, cookbooks, crafts, children’s, coffee table books, and much more, along with DVDs , music CDs, LP’s and puzzles.

It all begins on Saturday June 19th, and continues on July 24th, and August 21st in the basement.

PS – Do some Spring cleaning of your shelves and bring your gently used book, DVD and CD donations anytime the Library is open, prior to and on the day of the sale. Also, watch for our upcoming Drive up and Drop Off day.

Any questions? Contact the Konkle Library at 570-368-1840, https://www.konklelibrary.org/, address 384 Broad Street, Montoursville (Click for Google Maps).
