A bonanza for book-lovers

The Andover Townsman

---- — The Friends of Memorial Hall Library’s book sales have become not-to-be-missed events for anyone who still values the old-fashioned art of page-turning.

And readers weren’t disappointed this past weekend as they hunted through boxes upon boxes of books in search of new additions for their bookshelves.

The crowds were brisk at the three-day sale, which kicked off with an additional members-only preview for library friends.

The next sale will be a special one-day holiday event on Dec. 7. The winter sale is set for Jan. 24 through 26, so mark your calendars.

The Friends of MHL accept donations of gently used books, movies and music year-round. To make a donation, call 978-623-8401, ext. 49, or visit
