Friends Fall Used Book Sale, October 23-28

Our Fall Book Sale will take place Monday, October 23 through Saturday, October 28 in the Rogers Room of the Library.  Sale hours are coordinated with Library open hours.

Monday, October 23: 10 am – 8 pm
Tuesday, October 24: 10 am – 8 pm
Wednesday, October 25: 10 am – 8 pm
Thursday, October 26: 10 am – 5 pm
Friday, October 27: 10 am – 5 pm
Saturday, October 28: 10 am – 5 pm

Books, videos, CDs, all priced to sell.  We have plenty of quality books due to several generous donations.
Bookseller alert: Friends volunteers go through all donations to find books that are worth $8 or more online.  Friends then list these items for sale on Amazon rather than including them in these twice-a-year sales.
Membership has its privileges:  On Wednesday, October 25, current Friends members get a 50% discount on all they purchase.  New members can join and current members can renew at the door of the sale.  Memberships begin at $10 for individuals and are good for twelve months.
Bag days!  On Friday and Saturday, all shoppers may fill standard grocery bags with books and other materials and pay just $5 per bag.
We need your help!  As usual, it is your help that makes our book sale a success!  More than 70 people helped with our last sale.  We will soon begin scheduling volunteers for our spring sale.  We will be calling Friends members and others who have helped with past sales: please answer our call.
On Wednesday October 18, we will begin setting up the sale.  Strength and perseverance are needed to set up tables and move 300 or so boxes of books into the Rogers Room.  Please lend a hand any time between 3:00 and 7:00 PM. Help is also needed in fine-tuning the setup October 19-21.  Volunteers are needed to staff the sales desk during the sale, October 23-28.  The big clean-up starts at Noon, Monday, October 30.  Many hands make light work!
Each volunteer will earn 2 books of their choice for each shift they work.  You’ll have fun and your library, community and bookshelf will benefit.  Spread the word and tell your friends that they do not need to be members of Friends to volunteer!
If you prefer to schedule your favorite time, you can call Susan Schubothe at 503 359-4006 or email her at
