Friends of the Library Fall Used Book Sale

Ever wonder how to get something done?

Thanks to a generous donation, the Friends of the Rochester Hills Public Library (RHPL) Fall Used Book Sale has an unusually large selection of “How To” books on how to draw and how to paint along with instruction books on sculpture, pottery, stained glass, and other crafts. Also donated were lots of woodworking books.

This is in addition to the usual fine selection of over 30,000 books, both fiction and non-fiction, along with DVDs, CDs, audio books, puzzles, and games.
