 Books, volunteers needed for annual Memorial Day Weekend sale

It’s that time of year again. In preparation for the annual Memorial Day weekend sale, the Friends need donations of “gently used” books.  Books can be dropped off at the library during regular business hours. For the sale itself we need volunteers to unload the books at the two sale sites, and to assist during the sale.

The 2017 version of the annual Memorial Day weekend sale will take place Friday, May 26, and Saturday, May 27. The Friday evening sale, from 5 to 7 p.m., is for members of the Library Friends only. This gives you Friends first crack at books.

Fiction, children’s books, and audio and video discs will be available at Pine Grove. Non-fiction books will be at the Hoffman Center for the Arts. The Saturday sale will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at both sites. This day the sales are open to the general public.

If you have some good books you can part with, please donate them to the sale. Excluded are encyclopedias, textbooks and sets, such as Time-Life and Readers’ Digest sets. If you would like to help out with the sale, please contact Ann Morgan, 503-368-6595, or
