Autumn....the colors of rust, red and yellow in our trees, the crackle of dried leaves under our feet, the thrill of the the wind whipping through your hair, the smell of a book in your hand....yes, these all say Autumn to me.
I love the autumn and I love a good booksale! The library is humming with excitement for this year's Annual Friends of the Library Book Sale. I plan to be there early perusing the gently used books and music CDs. I will stock up on some of my favorite authors and even pick out some nice books to use as gifts for my nieces and nephews for Christmas.
Weeks and months prior to this annual event, our volunteers, led by Natalie Gustafson, Mickey Kissane and Eleanor Bajohr, comb through donated books to find treasures that you and I will enjoy on our coffee table, in our bookcases and as gifts. This year's sale is no different. There are boxes and boxes of items under lock and key just waiting for patrons to purchase. The "Friends" already have a nice variety of books, books on CD, DVDs, VHS movies, and music CDs. If you would like to donate to the variety on hand, please feel free to call the library for guidelines.
The dates and times for this year's sale are:
Thursday, October 16: 9am - 8:30pm
Friday, October 17: 9am - 5pm
Saturday, October 18: 10am - 4pm
All proceeds from the sale will be used to benefit the library and/or library programs. Past proceeds have helped to finance library renovations, purchase computers for public use and refinish tables.
Celebrate autumn...come to the booksale!
