Spring Book Sale, April 16-21

The Friends Spring Book Sale will take place Monday, April 16 through Saturday, April 21 in the Rogers Room of the Forest Grove City Library, 2114 Pacific Avenue in Forest Grove.

Sale Hours are coordinated with Library open hours: Monday, April 16, 9:30-8, Tuesday, April 17, 9:30-8, Wednesday, April 18, 9:30-8 Thursday, April 19, 9:30-5:30 Friday, April 20, 9:30-5:30 Saturday, April 21,9:30-5:30

Books, videos, CDs, vinyl records…all priced to sell!  Tables will be restocked every day.  Credit cards are welcome.

Membership has its privileges! On Wednesday, April 18, current members of Friends get a 50% discount for all they purchase.  You can get a new membership or renew your membership at the door.   Individual one-year memberships are now $10, Family memberships $20, Contributing memberships $35 and Sustaining memberships $100.  A membership form is also available on this website: see the “join’ page.

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 fee.  Your membership year will begin when you pay your dues. If you purchased or renewed your membership at the fall book sale (October, 2017) your membership will be valid for this sale in April.

Bag days are back!  Friday and Saturday, all shoppers can fill standard grocery bags with books and other media and pay just $5 per bag.

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.  More than fifty peopled helped with the sale in October.

  • 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 on Thursday, April 12 between 3:00 and 5:30.
  • Volunteers are also needed to put books on shelves and tables before the sale, during the day, April 13-14, 9:30 – 5:30.
  • Another vital job is taking two-hour shifts cashiering during the days of the sale.

Those who help with set-up and “minding the store”  get  two free books for their efforts.

If you are interested in helping make the book sale a success, please call Mike Smith 503 530-9353 or email m2zsmith@msn.com

And of course, we welcome book donations any time!  Please bring books that are in good condition to the Library.  Library staff tells us that Wednesday evenings are the best time to bring books to the Library.
