Books, videos, CDs, vinyl records…all priced to sell! We have more books than ever this year, in all categories. Tables will be restocked every day.
Membership has its privileges!
On Saturday, May 16 (10:00-3:00), current members may fill a standard grocery bag with books and pay just $5 for the bag full. This benefit is similar to the bag full sales of the past BUT current Friends membership is required.
Your library card does not make you a member of Friends of the Library. Friends of the Library is a non-profit organization that has been helping the Forest Grove Library since 1973. You need to sign up for Friends membership and pay for your annual membership. Your membership year will begin when you pay your dues. If you purchased a membership at the Fall 2014 book sale, your membership is good until Fall 2015.
Memberships can be purchased at the door of the book sale. Individual one-year memberships are $5, Family memberships $10, Contributing memberships $25 and Sustaining memberships $100. [Dues may increase July 1, 2015.]
Dealer Alert: Friends volunteers have carefully combed through donations and library discards, looking for items that Friends can sell online. Books and other media that we think we can sell online for $8 or more won’t be on sale at this twice-a-year on-site book sale.
You can help: As always, we have several volunteer opportunities.
- We need help with set-up and take-down. Strong backs and willing hearts are needed to move boxes of books from two rooms in the Library to the Rogers Room the evening of Wednesday, May 6.
- Volunteers are also needed to put books on shelves and tables before the sale, during the day, May 7-9.
- Another vital job to be filled is taking two-hour shifts cashiering during the days of the sale.
- A final, big effort is required after 3:00 on Saturday, May 16. The remaining books have to be boxed and the room cleaned up after the sale.
Those who help with set-up, “mind the store” and take-down get to take two free books for their efforts, and all book sale volunteers are invited to join us for a Dutch treat dinner after clean up is completed on Saturday.
If you are interested in helping make the book sale a success by helping out, please call Carol Woodford, 503 357-2606 or email email@example.com.
And of course, we welcome book donations any time! Please bring books that are in good condition to the Library.
