That's one reason the Friends of the Quarryville Library are holding an inventory reduction sale.
The other, and perhaps more obvious, reason is to raise money for the library itself.
"Last year [in 2014], we gave the library $35,000," said Carol Biscardi, the group's president. "We had pledged $28,000, and we were able to beat that."
The additional revenue helped the library pay for several unexpected expenses, including repairs to the building's heating and air conditioning system.
