FOL of the Irvin L. Young Memorial Library to Hold Book Sale

The Whitewater Friends of the Library will be holding a book sale in the Library Community Room from Tuesday, September 4, 9:00 am – 8:00 pm through Saturday, September 8, 9:00 am – noon. The sale will continue into the afternoon as volunteers move any leftover materials to the FOL Shop and place items on carts for sale in the lobby.

The Friends of the Library have been raising money selling books, music CDs, and DVDs to cover the costs for library programs and events. They have been selling books from carts in the lobby and the Friends Shop on an ongoing basis for several years.

The second year of tough municipal funding cuts brought about the decision to sponsor a week-long book sale in order to raise enough funds to support planned programming in 2019.  Library patrons have been generous in the donations they have provided for this sale. Numerous items have been withdrawn from the library collections in order to create space for new materials.

The plan is to have each item individually priced for the sale.

If you have time, please sign up at the Circulation Desk to volunteer for the sale.  In addition, sale customers will have the opportunity to join the Friends of the Library.  A lifetime membership is only $100.
