A huge thanks to the book lovers in this community who supported the Rocklin Friends of the Library’s semi-annual surplus book sale last month. We raised nearly $900, gained six new members and two volunteers. Many thanks also to the volunteers who worked throughout the day.
In addition to holiday books, we will be selling a selection of great gift books, CDs and DVDs as well as children’s books in our bookstore during December. Adult and children’s books (unless marked) are $3 for hardbacks and $2 for paperbacks, CDs and DVDs.
And be sure to check out our eBay store for some unique book ideas for that hard-to-shop for friend or family member.
We welcome donations of gently used books, CDs and DVDs to keep our inventory fresh. Please note that we cannot accept computer manuals, textbooks, Bibles, VHS tapes, dictionaries or encyclopedias.
Throughout the year our Dream Team keeps the bookstore stocked as well as sets up and packs books at our quarterly book sales. However, our “players” sometimes get benched because of injuries or vacations, so we could use backup team members. Hours are minimal; the benefits are huge!
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. Friends also host programs throughout the year, including the Birthday Club and Storytime at the Station.
To join the Dream Team or to donate books, send an email to email@example.com.
