Dixon Public Library Historical Collection Books-available Feb. 28th.

We will be selling the Dixon Public Library's collection of antique books. This will begin on Feb. 28th. We will be having groupings of 15 to 20 books every couple of weeks. Stay tuned for many varied authors and almost all 1800's and early 1900's books. Most of these books are not ex-library, they are uncatalogued antique books that have been at our public library for some over 100 years. These books will be sold mostly on a best offer basis. Proceeds will go to the library trust fund to be used for various programs and needs at the library. Please feel free to ask questions or request info on any of these books.

The listings will be clearly marked with the initials, DPL.
