Friends of the Library Sale Features Quilting Books

Used Book and Media Sale

The Friends of the Rochester Hills Public Library sale of used books and assorted other media on April 26-29 gives book-o-philes, game lovers, music and movie fans. At this edition of the sale, fans of quilts and quilting get a bonanza, thanks to a recent large donation of books on the subject.

The sale takes place at the Friends’ second floor used book sale facility at the Library, 500 Olde Towne Road in downtown Rochester.
