Book and Media Sales

Look for Ed and the Hooked on Books used book and media sale on the ground floor of the East Pennsboro Township Municipal Building. From 10:00 am until 3:00 pm every Tuesday and Thursday, hundreds of gently used books and media at great prices fill the rooms and the hallway! All proceeds benefit East Pennsboro Branch Library.
