West Newton Library, 124 N. Water St., will hold a jewelry and “fill-a-bag” book sale from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 24 in the parking lot, a spokesperson said.

All visitors will be asked to practicing social distancing and to wear masks. Library volunteers said that more than two years’ worth of donations of gently used books have been sanitized and quarantined, and will be on sale.

Parking will be available at the West Newton Senior Center or other nearby spaces. For more information, call (724) 633-0798.

The rain date for the sale will be May 1. Book donations will be accepted up until one week before the sale.

No further jewelry donations are being accepted at this time, but please save them for next year’s sale, a spokesperson said.

Books on sale will include hardcovers, paperbacks, children’s books, biographies and non-fiction, as well as recent DVDs. All books were donated and library volunteers check to see if they’re needed for the library’s collection before putting them on sale.
