Angela Llewellyn - Mount Airy Public Library



The Friends of the Mount Airy Public Library group has begun the process to open a used bookshop, called Between the Covers, on Main Street, and it will be the fundraiser for the library’s programs. We hope you will support the store, which in turn will support us. The store will begin opening for business in March, and the grand opening will take place in April. The store will be located at 140 Main Street, between the movie theatre and Specialty Gifts. Contact Pat Gwyn, pgwyn@nwrl.org, or call 336-789-5108, to volunteer to help with the shop.
