Booksale Coming Soon!

booksWe are having a book sale on May 17-19th at the De Soto Community Center and want to make all patrons aware of how they can help support their library this spring!  All proceeds from the book sale, book-bag sale and raffle will support our Summer Reading Program for kids.

First, plan to attend the book sale and buy a bag of books. Very very good prices! Most items will be by-the-bag for $1/bag!  We have more than 2500 books available for sale in all categories.

Second, stop by the library in advance of the sale to donate $5 and in return, receive a hand-made, fully lined book bag (available in 2 different fabrics) with the library’s name on it.  You are also invited to bring this bag to the sale and fill it once for FREE!  Only 40 of these bags available, but if we have any left by the dates of the sale, they can be purchased there as well.

Third, donate $1 and receive a raffle ticket ticket for our custom-made (by your librarian, just for this event) book bags. Only 80 of these tickets are available.  The drawing will be held May 19th.  Hurry, these tickets will go fast!! See below for photos of the 3 book bags for this raffle.

And lastly, if you have good used books (or book-related items, such as book ends, etc.) you want to donate to the sale, please drop them off at the library during open hours.  Try to avoid putting them in the book return bin if possible, but if you need to use the bin, please mark the book as a donation.  Books can also be dropped off at my house a few blocks from the library, 137 Ridge St.  Put on covered front porch.

We hope the community will come together to help clear out books that need a good home and support our summer reading program for the kids of the area!
