Admission to this event is free. These books, offered at low prices, help to fund materials, programs, and services for the Library.

The mission of the Friends of the Library is to assist the Library by funding materials, programs, and services beyond the Library’s regular budget, encourage volunteer service, promote the value of the Library to citizens of Lycoming County, and advocate support of the Library.
