    Will FRIENDS OF THE DURHAM LIBRARY tote bags be available for sale? My branch (North Regional) no longer have them.

      Yes, there will be a limited supply of tote bags available. They will also be offered at a discount as the Friends are running out the supply in order to redesign the next batch of bags.
