Friends of Rodman Library Book Sale

Book sale bargain huntersFriends of Rodman Public Library Annual Used Book Sale will take place Sunday through Thursday, July 29-August 2. This year there are 100,000+ items due to extensive donations received from the academic libraries of the University of Mount Union and increased patron donations.

A listing of collectible books for sale is also available which may be viewed on the Library’s website at
