The Friends of the St. Maries Library have an ongoing book sale at the library. There are books on shelves next the the front desk and a wide selection in the basement. Hardcover books are $1.00, paperbacks are 25 cents. All proceeds help the library with special programs and materials.



Now when you go to almost any booksellers website you will be able to see if the book you are thinking of buying is at one of our libraries.

When you click on over to the library catalog you will see in the lower right hand corner "New Bookmarklet". Click on the highlighted link and follow the directions.

You will need to type in both the title and author when you are searching the booksellers website. When you do this the book, if available at one of our libraries, should come up first on the list.
