Great Deals … Great Cause!
The spring book sale sponsored by the Friends of the Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library is this weekend, Friday, May 20th through Sunday, May 22nd, and an event you won’t want to miss! Although it’s called a “book sale”, because that’s the main item that the Friends sell, it’s much more than that! Books of all types can be found, both used and new, library discards and books originally purchased by others, from baby board books to hardcover and paperback fiction and nonfiction books for children, teens and adults, to reference books, magazines and large print books. VHS and audio tapes, music CDs and books on CD, as well as a few posters, LP albums, children’s puzzles and other odds and ends also await shoppers. And all at bargain prices! Magazines are the lowest priced items at 10 cents each and items for sale go up from there to $2 for adult hardbacks. Some special quality items are priced at higher prices.
The sale times are Friday evening, May 20th, 5 – 7 PM with an entrance fee of $5 for the opportunity to preview the sale; Saturday, May 21st, 9:30 AM – 5 PM, with a bag sale, $10 per brown grocery bag of items from 3 – 5 PM; and Sunday, May 22nd, 1 – 5 PM, a brown grocery bag of items all afternoon for $5 per bag.
Come enjoy shopping for bargains and support the Friends of the Library at the same time! Proceeds from this and all book sales go directly to support the Library and its services. Our Friends have donated more than $120,000 to the Library in the last 30 years to support programming and to purchase items for the Library during building projects. The Library would not be the special place that it is today without the ongoing support of our Friends group. Become a Friend of the Library for just $10 per year – you can join when you visit the sale this weekend!
