Have You Been to
the Little Corner Bookstore
at the South Yarmouth Library?

Books make great stocking stuffers! The South Yarmouth Library Association organizes a great ongoing book sale in the northwest corner of the main floor – over near the newspaper and magazine area. They accept donations of gently used books for all ages – in good condition, and free from must and mold. Most items are $1.00 or less. With proceeds from the sale of these books, SYLA funds many programs at the library, provides a number of museum passes for free or reduced entrance to many places of learning, and contributes to staff and community events – the “icing on the cake,” here at the library.  It is open whenever the South Yarmouth Library is open, and you pay at the front desk. Come browse the Little Corner Bookstore!
