New location for Friends of the Library Book Sale

By Lynn Frederick
Special to The PREVIEW

Mark your calendars now for the Friends of the Library annual sale.

It will be held Aug. 16-17 at a new location.  This year, it will be held at the Centerpoint Church, 2750 Cornerstone Drive.

The sale for members will take place on Aug. 16, beginning with a potluck dinner at 6 p.m., followed by a very short meeting.  At 7 p.m., members will have first choice to the books, CDs and DVDs.

If you have not renewed your membership since last year’s sale, you can do it anytime from now until the sale.  There will be an opportunity to join as you enter the church prior to the potluck.  Of course, anyone is welcome to join for the first time, also.

Membership is a reasonable $15 for one person, $25 for a family, or $100 for an individual lifetime membership.  Call the library at 264-2209 to let them know if you will be attending the potluck and what you will be bringing.  Table service and beverages will be provided.

On Aug. 17, the book sale will be open for the general public from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Local patrons have been donating books for the past year for the sale.   You will find something that interests you, regardless of your reading choices.  We have everything from art to westerns conveniently located so you can go directly to the kind of book you prefer.  And, don’t forget the children in your life;  there will be books for them.

In keeping with the modern library services, you will find CDs and DVDs, also.  Merchandise will be priced so  you can haul away enough to satisfy any bookworm for months.  Hardbacks and large paperbacks are priced at $2; CDs and DVDs are $1 per disc; children’s books are only 10 cents.  Cash and checks are accepted, but not credit cards.

All proceeds from the sale will go to support the library.  In the past, the sale has helped to fund the Summer Reading Program, and to buy shelves and display cases.
