Special Entry Process

The pandemic and safety precautions require us to host the sale a little differently this time around.

In keeping with COVID guidelines, capacity limits are in effect and online reservations are required in advance for entry into the Adult Sale on 11/5 & 11/6. Patrons will have 30 minutes to shop, before the next group will be allowed in. Separate reservations are needed for each individual.

Reserve (1) 30-minute shopping time

The children’s room will have a capacity limit, but reservations are not needed to purchase children’s books. When the limit is reached, patrons next in line will be admitted as other patrons leave the room.

On Sunday, all patrons can walk in to purchase adult and children’s books. Capacity limits will be in place in all areas of the sale.

Please Note: No container larger than a banker’s box will be allowed inside the sale.

 

Thank You for your continued support!

All items have been donated and proceeds directly support library programs and services that benefit patrons and community members. The Friends of the East Greenbush Community Library is a nonprofit, volunteer organization committed to creating broad community support for the East Greenbush Community Library.
