Shoppers at the ATLA book sale found amazing treasures, lots of good books to read, and entertaining movies and music – while raising over $38,000!

The sale returned indoors at Nagel Middle School from June 24-26 (many thanks to Burger Farm and Garden for hosting our sales in 2020 and 2021!) and the community turned out to support additional programming, materials, and other items for the Anderson and Mt. Washington Branch Libraries.

Huge thanks to Nagel Middle School, our volunteers, and our many customers in Anderson, Mt. Washington, and Greater Cincinnati for turning out for our sale and supporting the Library!
