Friends of the Library announce May book sale
The Friends of the Plumas County Library announced that their next sale is scheduled for the first week of May and will run for the usual three days. Mark your calendars for the following dates and times:
Thursday, May 5th – 2 pm to 6 pm for Friends’ Members only.
Friday, May 6th – 10 am to 6 pm, open to the public.
Saturday, May 7th – 10 am to 2 pm, open to the public.
Although the first day of the sale is reserved for Friends’ Members only, if you’re not currently a member you can purchase or renew your membership on the spot. This gives you the chance to be among the first to look over the sale’s many offerings. Annual memberships are only $10 and lifetime memberships are $100 per person.
The sale will be held as usual in the Community Room of the Plumas County Library in Quincy and there are many new and interesting books to choose from. For your browsing ease, non-fiction books are organized by category and hardback and paperback fiction are in alphabetical order by author.
As always, children’s books are free, and you and your children are invited to select 20 free books per family. For the convenience of you and your family, children’s books will be displayed outside on the library porch (weather permitting of course).
The book sale will also include a silent auction that everyone can participate in. These silent auctions feature books of greater than average value, rarity, or special interest. Bidding can be exciting and you’re encouraged to join the fun.
Although the Friends welcome your donations of gently used books, they want to emphasize that they can’t accept donations during the sale itself. If you have books or media you’d like to donate prior to the sale, please call Bev McColm at 283-3997.
Proceeds from this sale will go toward restoration of library services to the Greenville community after the devastating fire that destroyed their library. This means that your purchases at this sale will not only give you hours of reading pleasure, but also help your friends and neighbors.
The Friends want to stress that in these hard times, our libraries are more important than ever as a resource and a safe haven. They thank everyone for supporting them in the past and hope to continue working together in the future for the good of the community’s libraries.
The Friends look forward to seeing everyone at their book sale. For any further information, email [email protected]. You can also visit them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/quincyfriendslibrary.
