Fall 2012 - Adult Display Case

The left side display case in the lobby of the Library is now full of special finds of adult books which will be for sale at the book sale starting September 27. Warning: we reserve the right to correct any mistakes we have made in the prices or descriptions being published here. We may remove a book if we detect a mistake and we may add books without updating the list.

We have more photos but the blogger wants to load them sideways and that just looks funny.
