Library Accepting Donations for Fall Children's Book Sale

The Friends of the Lane Memorial Library are accepting donations of gently-used children's books for its upcoming Children's Book Fair on Thursday, November 1, from 3-7 pm, and Friday, November 2, from 9:30-3:30pm.

The Book Sale is open to the public and will feature an assortment of children's books including picture books, early readers, learn-to-read books as well as chapter books. Children's DVDs, videos and puzzles will also be available. The book sale will be held in the Lane Room and all items are 25 cents.

"Our children's book sale is a terrific family event, and we are expecting another great turnout this year," comments Friends volunteer Sue Hughes, who is coordinating the Book Sale. According to Hughes, families with children of all ages attend the sale including those with infants and toddlers, beginning readers as well as teenagers.

“When a child outgrows a book or moves to a higher reading level, it’s a great opportunity for area residents to donate their gently-used books to our Children's Book Sale. And after creating more bookshelf space at home, families can purchase new items at a nominal cost. It’s a win-win situation for their children and the Lane Library." Donations will be accepted up to and continuing through the sale, and items can be brought directly to the Lane Library children's room. Picture books and easy readers are especially appreciated.

All proceeds raised from the November 1 and 2 Children's Book Fair benefit the Friends, a multi-age volunteer organization whose mission is to preserve and strengthen the library as a community resource. The Friends of the Lane Library sponsors a variety of speakers, exhibits, and community events for the benefit of the Lane Memorial Library.
