Mark your calendar for the Friends of the Riverdale Public Library Annual Book Sale. The 2019 sale is scheduled for Friday, March 22, 4 - 8 p.m., Saturday, March 23, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Sunday, March 24, noon - 3 p.m. The sale takes place at the Riverdale Senior and Community Center, 57 Loy Avenue in Riverdale.

Donations of books, CD's and DVD's will be accepted in the library from Monday, January 7 to March 9, 2019.

In addition, there is a small ongoing book sale with hardcover fiction on a cart near the library entrance. This is a great place to pick up stocking stuffers and beach reads.
