From Colleen Bauman, Community Engagement Manager, Pickerington Public Library
The Friends of Pickerington Public Library will be having their semiannual book sale at Pickerington Main Library, 201 Opportunity Way.
The sale begins Wednesday, November 3, 4:00-7:00 p.m., with a special pre-sale for Friends members only. The public can join the Friends at the door to participate in the pre-sale. The book sale is open to the general public from November 4 through 6 during regular library hours. On Sunday, November 7 the last day of the sale, there will be a bag sale (Friends supply the bags) from 1:00-3:00 p.m.
Almost all the items at the sale (around 8,000) have never been previously offered. The sale has a variety of books in many genres and will provide enjoyment for different ages. There are also DVDs, computer and board games, puzzles, graphic novels, and audio books. Come early for the best selection!
The proceeds from the sale support many Pickerington Public Library services, resources and activities such as the Homework Help Center, Santa Saturday, Summer Reading, author visits, and programs for children, young adults, and adults. Friends also provide funding for purchases of library staff appreciation gifts, computers, furniture and artwork.
From all the book donations received, Friends have shared donated books to area organizations for local and overseas projects. The Friends purchased the wonderful Music Garden for the library and community. Be sure to enjoy the instruments on your next visit to the library!
