MGS Library:  Books to be Donated or Sold

Several months ago, we mentioned the need to find new owners for many (not all!) of the genealogy books that have been held at the Darien Library.    

We are in the process of speaking with various libraries to see if they are interested in receiving any of our books as donations.  

Our last recourse is to offer the books up for sale to members and friends, followed by the general public.
