Friends of the Greenville Public Library Accepting Book Donations for Used Book Sale

Packing up books from his Great Ages of Man collection,Don Boyer on
Avenue D in Greenville is checking his bookcases for other books to donate to the
Friends of the Library Used Book Sale coming up in May at P.A.W.S.
Spring cleaning is just around the corner and those good used books the family has read are just begging for new readers.

As you clean your bookshelves, box up those books and deliver them to P.A.W.S. on Martin Street across from the Dairy Queen any weekday afternoon before May 3. Someone will appreciate the opportunity to purchase those books you have enjoyed as they assist the Friends of the Greenville Public Library.

FOL, each year, uses the proceeds from the annual Used Book Sale as well as contributions from members to provide materials, equipment and programs beyond the Greenville Public Library’s budget. This past year, Friends helped fund the new Security System, the theater system in the third floor Conference Room, several large bulletin boards, a set of World Book Encyclopedias for the Children’s Department, funds for the Wii and Lego Club, updating microfilm for the Genealogy Department and the Summer Family Reading Program.

Books donated should be in good condition, with no magazines, Readers’ Digest Condensed Books or encyclopedias. FOL must pay for the cost of disposing of undesirable materials, which reduces their proceeds from the sale of books. The 2013 Annual Used Book Sale will be on Friday, May 17, and Saturday, May 18/ Small amounts of books may be brought to the Greenville Public Library. Larger quantities should be delivered to P.A.W.S.

For any questions about the book sale, membership or activities of the Friends of the Greenville Public Library, call 937.548.1916.
