Book Sale returns in May!
The Friends of the Library will hold their semi-annual book sale on Saturday May 19, on the Library grounds from 10 am to 3 p.m.
The Friends book sales provide a rare opportunity to find terrific bargains to give as gifts or to add to your own library. We will have fiction and non-fiction for all ages in superb condition at low prices.
The Friends book sales are one of the most important sources of revenue for the Friends, and all proceeds go to the Library in the form of gifts. The Friends have funded a variety of public programs, including Spanish and French Circle Time, our unique summer reading program for children, lanyards for kids’ library cards, new e-resources for adults and children, and many research tools, now available on-line.
We always need volunteers to help out at the sale, in two-hour shifts between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm. Service learning hours are available for high school students – and adult volunteers have an opportunity to spend a pleasant afternoon meeting their neighbors, as well as helping their community Library. For information on volunteering at the book sale, contact Ellen Robbins at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 301-891-7258.
Thanks to all those who donated really beautiful books.
Book donations will be accepted through May 15. Donated books must be of general interest, in good condition, and must be brought by appointment if there are more than three boxes. Donated books cannot be accepted at the sale.Posted by library at May 4, 2012 04:39 PM
