Friends of the Library fall book sale postponed

(STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA / September 3, 2021) – The Friends of the Stillwater Public Library Board has voted to postpone its Sept. 16-19 used book sale citing concerns for the safety of its customers, volunteers, and members and a desire to help the community’s health professionals by not hosting a large event that attracts over a thousand shoppers from across the state. The Friends Board will reschedule the sale for the spring and is planning a series of mini-sales in the fall and winter. The group encourages book lovers to follow its Facebook page at, or check the Stillwater Public Library’s website and social media sites for dates and announcements.
