"Even though we have been unable to host 2 of our 4 book sales due to the pandemic, we have continued to fund major projects at the library. We just reached into our reserves to partner with the City of Brentwood to replace the critical moving wall that separates our meeting rooms. This unexpected $30,000 expense coupled with the lost revenue from cancelled book sales means we need the community's support,” FOBL President Kathy Dooley-Smith said in an email. “Please come out this weekend and shop our book sale." 

The group will continue to have safety precautions including limiting the number of shoppers allowed in the Brentwood Library's meeting room as well as sanitizing regularly and adjusting the layout to promote social distancing.

The John P. Holt Brentwood Library is located at 8109 Concord Road.
