The Book Seller is Open Saturdays
TROY – Have you checked out the Book Seller within the Lansingburgh library yet? Now on Saturdays you can go to the Troy Farmers Market at it’s new location in Lansingburgh at the old Price Chopper site and then come to the Book Seller . We offer gently used books of all types, plus CDs. The store has new selections each week. These have been safely quarantined before being put on the shelves.
The Book Seller is a project of the Friends of the Troy Public Library. All proceeds go to adding programs and services at the library, both at Main and the Lansingburgh Branch. For more info go to www.friendsofthetroylibrary.org or follow us on Facebook at email@example.com
