Friends of the Library book sale is almost here

Letter to the Editor

Editor:

Our Friends of the Library summer clearance book sale is almost here! It will be offered during library hours Thursday, June 13 until mid-afternoon, Saturday, June 15. Take as many books, etc. as you want for a fair donation. We have plenty of shopping bags!

We have an unusually large supply of biographies and history books. Needlecraft aficionados, we have exciting items for you. Dictionaries, atlases, thesauruses have flooded in, and, if you like the feel of a real book in your hand, instead of consulting the Internet, we have a large supply. Cookbook lovers will find oodles to browse and there are classics, juvenile and young adult books for teachers and home-schoolers trying to build up their resources. Science, self-help, gardening, health, diet and short stories are also in high supply. There will be a table especially devoted to Christmas. We are over-supplied with CDs, DVDs and jig-saw puzzles, great for snowy days!

We always appreciate your donations! The revenue from our book store and clearance sales are the only source for new books for the library, so our head librarian, Serenity Richards, cherishes every dollar brought in from sales from the store and the book sale.

However, this year, we do ask/beg/entreat those of you who have large book donations for our book store to bring them in after the sale. All books must be processed before being placed.

By necessity, we are in a controlled state of chaos from now until the sale is over on Saturday, June 15. Our sorting tables will be already in place for the massive setup the following week and we will literally have no place to put your large book donations.
