What began as a once-a-month garage sale of donated books, has evolved into an impressive, well-stocked used bookstore. The bookstore’s all-volunteer staff receives donations from individuals and estates and sells the donated books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, and videos. Most books sell for $2 and magazines 25¢ (a detailed price list is posted throughout the store).
