The Friends of the Lynnfield Library have set the Spring Book Sale for Saturday, May 16 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on the Town Common. In case of inclement weather, the Lynnfield Library will accommodate the sale inside the building. The sale items will include a large assortment of gently used books and other media materials, ready to be scooped up by enthusiastic book sale fans.
And with spring on the horizon, this is the perfect time for the Friends to request donations of hardcover non-fiction, small and large fiction and non-fiction paperbacks, DVDs, music CDs and all children and young adult materials. Please note, however, that we cannot accept VHS tapes, textbooks, encyclopedias, Reader’s Digest Condensed collections or magazines.
So bring your boxed or bagged donations to the Library Circulation Desk or leave them in the Library foyer. It would be most helpful for the staff if you could use boxes or bags that you can leave at the library with your donations. The Library is accepting donations until one week before the sale.
According to Friends’ President Priscilla March, this year’s Used Book Sale occurs on Lynnfield Day during which there will be events at the Middle School as well as around the Common. The Book Sale and a variety of crafters sponsored by the Congregational Church will be located on the Common, the Lynnfield Art Guild’s Spring Judged Art Show will take place in the Meeting House, and a flea market will be offered on the lawn of the Church. “We’re looking forward to being a part of such a town-wide event,” she said.. “This spring book sale is a great fund-raiser for the Library which helps fund Library programming and services. In addition, it’s just going to be part of a fun day for the many, many people who come to browse and perhaps pick up some bargains. We hope Lynnfielders will keep us in mind as they are choosing places to donate – and buy – books and other materials!”
