Then came COVID-19, which prevented us from holding both our five-day spring and fall sales, disappointing our volunteers and thousands of eager customers. We therefore have a hugely reduced income and cannot contribute to the county’s libraries as we have done for 65 years.

We do expect to repeat our recent Bag of Books (BOB) sale in mid-January to mid-February. Other potential sale schemes are in the works. For information, please look at our website: folacld.org.
