Friends of the Library filled table after groaning table at the BSMC Banquet Hall this weekend in a book sale that benefits the Bartlett Library.

This year's sale featured an estimated 15,000+ books, audiobooks, music, and movies. With very few leftovers, the event netted about $7,900, said branch manager Gay Cain.

The funds will come directly back to the library through the Friends, who support story time, craft supplies, summer programs for children and other supplemental events and materials.
