The Friends of the Verona Library have been unable to hold their big book sale fundraisers during the pandemic.

During the pandemic, the Friends of the Verona Public Library hasn’t been able to hold its big book sale fundraisers. So the non-profit, which supports Library programs for children, teens and adults, has come up with an alternative: Monthly themed sales of books that are displayed near the circulation desk. Prices range from $1 for children’s books and adult paperbacks to $2 for adult hardcovers.

In March, the sale will feature novels by women, women’s studies, and parenting and child care books. In April, the focus will be sports, true crime and U.S. history. In May, look for grilling cookbooks, biographies, and home and garden books. June will be for science and nature books, as well as hobbies and crafts. July will feature poetry, drama, literature and classics, while August will have children’s fiction and non-fiction.

The Verona Public Library is located at 17 Gould Street in the center of town. It is open seven days a week: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 9 a.m.—9 p.m.; Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m.—5 p.m.; and Sunday, 2 to 5 p.m. Verona residents can get a library card online for free.

Memberships in the Friends of the Verona Library are $15 for individuals and $25 for families, and they entitle you to early shopping at the Friends’ big book sales. Friends memberships are also tax-deductible.
