FOL accepting used books for annual sale

GREENVILLE--Friends of the Greenville Public Library will hold its 2013 Annual Used Book Sale on May 17 and May 18 at P.A.W.S. on Martin Street in Greenville (across from the Dairy Queen).

FOL ask that as you do your spring cleaning, box up those books and deliver them to P.A.W.S. any weekday afternoon before May 3 – someone will appreciate the opportunity to purchase those books you have enjoyed as they assist the Friends of the Greenville Public Library.

Books donated should be in good condition, with no magazines, Readers’ Digest Condensed Books or encyclopedias. FOL must pay for the cost of disposing of undesirable materials, which reduces their proceeds from the sale of books. Small amounts of books may be brought to the Greenville Public Library. Larger quantities should be delivered to P.A.W.S.

Each year, Friends of the Library use the proceeds from the annual Used Book Sale as well as contributions from members to provide materials, equipment and programs beyond the Greenville Public Library’s budget. This past year, Friends helped fund the new Security System, the theater system in the third floor Conference Room, several large bulletin boards, a set of World Book Encyclopedias for the Children’s Department, funds for the Wii and Lego Club, updating microfilm for the Genealogy Department and the Summer Family Reading Program.

For more information about the book sale, membership or activities of the Friends of the Greenville Public Library, call 548-1916. 

While packing books from his Great Ages of Man collection, Don Boyer is also checking his bookcases for more books to donate to the Friends of the Library Used Book Sale coming up in May.
