We are making final preparations for our favorite fall event. The Friends’ annual used book sale is set for Saturday, October 18 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Meeting House with the “bag of books for $6 sale” taking place in the final hour.  A Preview for Friends’ members only will be from 6:00-8:00 pm on Friday, October 17, and all members will be welcome at that time.  However, those book dealers who are Friends will be welcome to purchase from 7:00 to 8:00 pm only.

The Friends are continuing to seek donations of hardcover non-fiction, small and large fiction and non-fiction paperbacks, DVDs, music CDs and all children and young adult materials.  The Friends cannot accept VHS tapes, textbooks, encyclopedias, Reader’s Digest Condensed collections or magazines.

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 right up until the sale.  If dropping off the books is not possible for you, the Friends offer home pick-ups.  Please call Alexis Gilbode at 781.608.4179 to arrange a pick up.  Donation receipts are available upon request.

According to Friends’ President Priscilla March, “The book sale is a great fund-raiser for the Library which helps fund Library programming and services, but it’s also 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!”

The Friends of the Lynnfield Library is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization supporting Library programs and activities both financially and through hundreds of volunteer hours each year.
