Friends to hold Tenth Book Sale; seek volunteers

The Friends will hold their Tenth Annual Book Sale from April 19 to 21. Dates/times for the public sale are Thursday, April 19, from 11am to 8pm; Friday, April 20, from 9:30am to 4pm; and Saturday, April 21, from 9:30am to 4pm. A members-only pre-sale is scheduled for Wednesday, April 18, from 5:30 to 8pm. Those who are not current dues-paying Friends members may join the organization the evening of April 18 to gain access to the members-only pre-sale.

The sale will feature reference works, hardcover books, paperbacks, records, videotapes, cassette tapes, CDs, and posters. Because of limited storage space, those wishing to donate items (no magazines or “condensed” books, please) in good, sellable condition are asked to wait until March before bringing them to the Main Library.

In addition to material donations, Jerry Caprio, Book Sale Chair, is seeking volunteers--individuals and organizations--to help sort the sale items before, during, and after the event. Those wishing to volunteer may leave a message for Jerry at the Library, by calling the Development Department at 733-7793.
