Volunteers sought for book sale
Bolton Library’s annual book sale is coming up soon, and volunteers are now being sought to help at the event.
The sale, to feature a wide array of books and other items, is to be held from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday July 26 and Saturday July 27 and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday July 28 at the library, 4922 Lake Shore Drive.

The sale not only will feature a wide array of books and other media, but a huge quantity of children’s books acquired from one donor.

Non-fiction books on hand include history, cookbooks, biographies, self-help, and travel. Classics include novels, short stories, plays, and poetry. DVDs, books on tape or disc, music CDs, records, and audiotapes are also being offered.
