The Friends of the Lynnfield Library are preparing for our favorite fall event. The Annual Used Book Sale is Saturday, October 22 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Meeting House with the “bag of books for $6” taking place in the final hour.  A Preview for Friends’ members only will be Friday, the evening of October 21, and all Friends’ members are welcome at that time.

The Friends are seeking donations of hardcover non-fiction, small and large fiction and non-fiction paperbacks, DVDs, music CDs and all children and young adult materials.  Just a reminder that we are looking for materials that are attractive for sale and have no water damage, ripped or missing pages, mold, stains or debris. The Friends cannot accept VHS tapes, textbooks, encyclopedias, Reader’s Digest Condensed collections or magazines.  Please keep in mind that in order to give us sufficient processing time, our deadline for donations is October 14, 2016

Please 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 a week before the sale.  Donation receipts are available upon request.

According to Friends’ President Ann Decker, “Each year we look forward to this fundraiser which brings the community together for a day of browsing, buying, socialization and fall fun. The Annual Fall Used Book Sale plays a large part in funding the Library programs and services that we all enjoy.”
