A book sale raises funds for the library

Local News

The Friends of the Library organized a large book sale on March 25 and 26 in the Library’s conference room. This has been very busy since the easing of COVID restrictions. Both days drew large crowds.

The Friends organize book sales which are given away throughout the year. The basement of the library has shelves filled with these books which are then sorted by volunteer subjects and donated to the library. Those not used by the library are then sold at book sale events held a few times a year. The money from these sales is given to the library to finance the purchases that the library needs. Fifty thousand dollars was donated to the library in previous sales last month.

Books covering almost any subject can be found at these sales and the average price is usually $2. It’s always a fun event and at the end of the last day the room is emptied and then reopened where there is a mad rush to get all the books you can fit in shopping bags bought for $2 each.

Watch for the next book sale scheduled for June 24, where there will necessarily be something for everyone.
