Friends of the Library Book Sale
Book lovers may now enjoy the Friends of the Library Book Sale year-round at the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library. Instead of saving donated books for the June book sale, they are now placed on a cart near the main desk and are available for purchase during library hours. Patrons decide what the books are worth to them and pay accordingly. The cart is resupplied weekly from books donated by the public. When donated books are received they are first evaluated by staff. Some are placed in the collection of the Fulmer Library or one of the branch libraries in Clearmont, Story, Ranchester; the others are given to the Friends for their book sale. Because of the success of the book cart sale, the Friends of the Library will not hold their annual Used Book Sale this year.
