All Library Branches to Offer Discard Book Sales

While Friends of the Library book sales have been suspended during the restoration process at Headquarters Library, each library branch will begin selling discarded books to benefit the Friends. Children’s books will be two for $1; all other books will be $1 each.
Proceeds will provide the Friends with the ability to supplement library programs and services that would not otherwise be possible such as Summer Reading Programs and the guest author speaker series.
Individuals wanting to support the Friends of the Library may select "Give Now" on the library's website. Friends memberships start at $15 and make great gifts. Membership enables entry to the members-only sale when book sales resume next year. In addition, all donations up to $12,500 to the Library Endowment Trust, managed by the Cumberland Community Foundation, Inc., will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Friends of the Library through Dec. 31, 2016.

            For more information, including the dates of rescheduled author visits, volunteer opportunities and more, visit the library’s website.
