Friends of the Whitefish Bay Library
November Book Sale – Good and Bad News
It’s with a heavy heart that it’s been decided that the Friends of the Whitefish Bay Public Library Fall Book Sale will not be held in its usual format this year.
We would like nothing better than to throw open our doors and see all our friends and neighbors streaming in and browsing our shelves. But thanks to COVID-19, that’s not to be at this time. We know that you understand that the safety and wellbeing of our staff, our volunteers and our patrons comes first.
However, the news isn’t all bad. A reminder that the Library’s Book Sale Room, located next to the front desk, is back up and running and features a constantly-changing variety of gently-used books at super prices. Stop by the next time you’re in the library.
Also, Friends continue to sell books and other media on eBay. Check out what’s currently for sale here:
Thanks to the generosity of Whitefish Bay residents, Friends have a lot of books. And since we’re not having the Book Sale in the form that you’re accustomed to, discussions are currently underway about how to get these books to people that can use and enjoy them, while also raising money for the Library. We are considering plans for a limited Book Sale and further Donation Days. We expect to have some news about these events soon and when details are finalized, we’ll let you know. Keep an eye on our Facebook page, website and monthly newsletter for all the details.
National Friends of the Library Week
October 18 - 24
It's time to celebrate our wonderful Friends of the Whitefish Bay Library! We'd like to give them a big thank you for all their hard work and commitment. Thanks to Friends the library is able to offer exciting programs for kids, teens and adults all-year round. In addition, Friends support our summer reading programs and many projects around the building including our self-checkout, furniture in the adult and kids wing, and the picture book reorganization project. Thank you Friends for your commitment to making the Whitefish Bay Public Library a wonderful library!
