Library Accepting Donations for Spring Children's Book Sale

The Friends of the Lane Memorial Library is accepting donations of gently-used children's books for its upcoming Children's Book Fair in May.

Donations will be accepted up to and continuing through the sale (date to be announced), and items can be brought directly to the Lane Library children's room. Picture books and easy readers are especially appreciated.

“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," comments Friends volunteer Sue Hughes, who is coordinating the Book Sale. "And after creating more bookshelf space at home, families can purchase new items at a nominal cost at our book sale. It’s a win-win situation for their children and the Lane Library."

Families with children of all ages -- from infants and toddlers to beginning readers and teenagers -- are invited to attend the sale which is open to the public. The book sale will be held in the Lane Room and 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. All items are 25 cents.

All proceeds raised from the Spring 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.
