West Newton Public Library is “respectfully asking” that no more donations be made for its upcoming book sale “due to the outstanding response.”

The library is holding the used book sale from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 3 in its parking lot at 124 N. Water St. Social distancing measures will be in place and masks are required.

A spokesperson said that the library has been asked by the Westmoreland Library Network to disinfect all books that come into the facility for any purpose. All of the items that already have been donated must be cleaned off before Oct. 3, the library said.

Donations of gently used books and other items will be accepted again after the sale, the spokesperson said.
