See you at the Book Sale!

High summer in the Valley...a perfect time to grab some books to top off your summer reading adventure.  We've got a super selection of books for everybody's pleasure, from escapist fiction to practical how-to's, to downright decadent coffee table "visual feast" books, plus about everything in between, including CDs, Audiobooks, DVDs, VHS, and now, also, vinyl records!

Nothing is priced at more than two dollars, and all students grades K-12 receive one free selection. ALSO, bring your filled out purchase receipt from the sale to Crisp Bakery (across the street from the library) and 25% of your coffee/pastry purchase will go the the Friends of the Sonoma Valley Library.

The sale starts on Wednesday, August 20th, with a member only preview from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (memberships available throughout the sale), then the sale then opens to the public from 3:30 p.m. to 7: 30 p.m. 

On Thursday, August 21st and Friday, August 22nd, the sale is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on Saturday August 23rd from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  During the book sale on Saturday, Charged Particles will be performing in the library starting at 11 a.m.  Charged Particles crosses stylist boundaries and blends multiple traditions to create vital new sounds in the electric jazz arena. The trio's repertoire blends jazz styles with elements from Latin music, classical music, funk, and more.
