Proceeds raised by the book sales support enhancements to the library programs and services.
Posted 30th August 2021 – Annual Book Sale Cancelled: Unfortunately the Friends annual book sale will not be held this year but we are hoping to hold it sometime in 2022. We appreciate your support and hope you visit our Bookstore which is located in the Citi Plaza next to the Central library. We do hope to hold pop-up sales and will publicize the dates and locations as soon as possible.
While we had to cancel the 2020 Fall Book Sale at Centennial Hall because of the pandemic’s impact, the Friends did conduct a mini-sale in late November due to the interest from a group of daycare and early childcare workers interested in obtaining easy-read books for their respective programs.
The Friends Executive organized a small drive-up sale in the parking lot of the Byron Branch Library (a location that allows easy access to our storage warehouse). Materials were selected and bagged by the sorting team and members of the Friends Board. Information about the sale was sent out to prospective agencies in advance and buyers were able to come by to pick up a bag of books for $10 without leaving their car. The sale was very successful and generated revenues of $330.
