Biggest Book Sale EVER!

The Friends of the Canastota Library will be holding their Annual Book Sale on October 21, 22 and 23 in the entire lower level of the library.  Gently used paperbacks and hard cover books, VHS tapes, audio tapes and CDs will be available at great prices during the sale.  While the Friends have an ongoing book sale at this library, this book sale is where the Friends pull out all the stops!  There will be raffles and library commemorative items also on sale.

The hours for the sale are Thursday, October 21:  9am - 8pm; Friday, October 22:  9am - 5pm and Saturday, October 23 from 10am - 4pm.  The Friends of the Library group is a great help to the library, offering volunteer services, fundraising events and assistance at community programs on behalf of the library. 

Membership dues for Friends of the Library are available on an annual basis.  The memberships are reasonable at $3 per individual and $10 per family.  Both membership dues and profits from the annual book sale go towards the purchase of special library supplies and programs.  During past years, the Friends have purchased new window treatments for the Carnegie Room, a dishwasher for the library's Community Kitchen, a speaker's podium and a much needed bicycle rack and garden bench.  The Friends also made a donation to match the grant offered by the Gates Foundation to purchase laptops and desktop computers for public use. 

We hope that you might stop out to support the annual book sale!  We are sure you will find a few good books!
