Paperbacks 75 years

Seventy-five years ago, one invention changed the way people read books forever. On July 30, 1935, Penguin book publishers introduced the first modern paperback book. Sir Allen Lane’s “Ariel the Life of Shelley” has the distinction of being the first of its kind, sparking a trend that would ultimately help make books more accessible and less expensive. We will have many different paperbacks at our Book Sale in August. Our Reedikulous Days Book Sale will be Friday, August 6th and Saturday, August 7th. As usual we will have adult and children’s fiction and nonfiction books in hardcover and paperback. Funds raised will benefit the library collection. Book donations are accepted any time at the library. Friends of the Library members can get in a day early with preview night on Thursday, August 5th from 6-7 PM. Become a member to get this first look.
