Last year’s Friends of the Library annual book sale, held on Saturday, August 3rd, raised just over $600 for the organization. Thanks to all who bought books and other items that day.
Please continue to bring us your gently used books, DVD’s and CDs and to shop for fabulous finds at both library’s book shops and the Fishers ongoing sale area so that we can continue to support library programs and events. We were especially pleased to provide funds for prizes and events for the Summer Reading Programs this year.
The book shops are located just inside the entrance at each building and you do not have to be a Friends’ member to purchase items from the book shops. New members are always welcome, however, and a one year individual membership is only $5, a one year family membership is just $10!
Friends Book Shops
As those of you who shop frequently in our book shops have undoubtedly noticed, our offerings vary from week to week. The offerings depend on our donations. We think we have a good business plan in that we accept your donations and turn them around for others to enjoy via our book shops. We are all volunteers and the library generously provides space for us to conduct our business. Our proceeds are then used by the library to support programs. All of this works quite nicely as long as we have a steady flow of your gently used books. This is a perfect time to do some spring cleaning, with a focus on the books shelves.
The book shops are located just inside the entrance at each building, but we still hear that people are unaware that the shops exist.
The Fishers Book Shop is open every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Books and videos located on the shelves right outside the Book Shop are available for purchase all hours the library is open and payments may be made at the Circulation Desk.
The Noblesville Book Shop is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., plus Wednesday 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Sunday 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. There is no ongoing sale at the Noblesville Library.
You do not have to be a Friends’ member to purchase items from the book shops. However, new members are always welcome and a one year individual membership is only $5, a one year family membership is just $10!
