Book Lovers Support Library Services
by Gloria Beverage - Book Sales Coordinator
Thanks to book lovers, more than $9,200 was collected last year through sales in the Friends of the Library's book store as well as during the quarterly surplus book sales.
Our goal for 2017 is $10,000. To attain that goal, we will be holding our surplus book sales every other month. The remainder of this year's sales will be held April 7-8, June 2-3, Aug. 4-5, Oct. 6-7 and Dec. 1-2.
Members can shop during the preview sale, which will be open Fridays from 5 to 7 p.m. Fill a shopping bag for just $2.
Saturday's sales will be open to the public from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Fill a bag for $5. Individual books can be purchased for $2 for hardbacks or $1 for paperbacks.
The used book store, located on the right at the front entrance to the library, continues to be our major fundraising success.
Adult and children's books (unless marked) are $3 for hardbacks and $2 for paperbacks. DVDs and audio tapes are also offered as well as a selection of book group recommendations.
Thanks to generous donors, we offer a wide range of genre - from fiction, romance and mystery to inspiration, biography, history, cookbooks and business.
Proceeds from our sales are used by the Placer County library staff to purchase adult and children's books as well as special materials for the library collection.
To become a member of the Friends of the Library (and obtain admission to the preview sale), visit
or pick up a membership form in our book store. Memberships start at $10.
We welcome book donations to keep our inventory fresh. Drop them in the slot just inside the library's front entrance.
We can also use some willing hands to help set up and pack up the surplus sales. If you can give us a couple of hours, please send an email to Gloria Beverage at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 799-7783
