    I have several brand new books (still in paper) that I would like to donate to the sale. Can I bring them by my library which is on Milton Road at Durham North Library?
    Thanks so much,
    Alyce Capasso (my mom’s name is on the library card because she is 85 and I have to get her books for her as she is housebound).

      Yes, you can drop off books at North Regional Library. I don’t think they will make this weekend’s sale, but they will be held for the Fall Book Sale in October.
