We Are More Than Just Books You may not be aware of what else the Clubhouse Library has to offer. The Library offers a unique array of items for sale in our Boutique. There is a wide variety of artistic treasures, jewelry, handbags, housewares, puzzles, knick-knacks, crystal glassware, and collectibles. Don’t miss the bargains on the dollar cart, along with greeting cards, calendars, CDs, and DVDs. All boutique items are donated, and the proceeds go to buy more books for the library.
Need something new to you to hang on your walls at home? The Library has framed art work of all sizes and styles. Currently, most of the art work has been marked down 50% of the original price. Now is the time to redecorate!
