Friends of Rockford Public Library Book Sale April 18, 20-21
The Friends of Rockford Public Library are hosting their annual Spring Book Sale on April 18 and 20-21. Wednesday, April 18, from 4-7 p.m. is the members-only presale. Current members are invited to shop the sale, and new members can join at the door for just $5. The sale is open to the general public from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Friday, April 20, and from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, April 21, in the Main Library Auditorium and classrooms A and B.
The annual spring sale offers thousands of items to choose from, including fiction and nonfiction, paperback and hardcover books, CDs and more. All proceeds benefit the Friends of Rockford Public Library, a 501(c)(3) organization that supports library programs, services and special events throughout the year.
“Our spring and fall sales are always big events for us,” said Annette Smith, Friends of Rockford Public Library Board president. “It gives us the opportunity to raise valuable funds for the library while finding new homes for books and other media that have either been donated to us or withdrawn from the library’s circulating collection.”
In addition to the standard sale, the spring sale will feature “Bag It for $2″ on Saturday when guests are invited to fill a bag with books for just $2. For more information about the sale or the Friends of Rockford Public Library, visit www.rockfordpubliclibrary.org/friends or call (815) 966-6721.
