FROM THE FRIENDS

It's that time of year for the Friends of the Library Used Book Sale!
On Sunday, December 3, the Friends will open their doors for a holiday sale on the first floor at the Brookline Village Library. The sale ends when they run out of the special items they've been saving up all year.
There are also some very special treats for film lovers: a fabulous array of brand new popular and art house films on DVD and Blu-ray, including titles from the Criterion Collection. The sale has something for everyone (including you!).
You never know exactly what you'll find, but you're sure to find the perfect gift. There will be children’s books and sets; games; a variety of unique and pristine coffee table books; beautiful Franklin Mint, Heritage Press, and other collectible books; and some fantastic, vintage, one-of-a-kind books.
So come in early and often and stock up on holiday gifts for as long as the supply lasts. You can't beat the prices, and you'll be supporting the Friends of the Library.
