CPL's Annual Friends of the Library Book Sale Nears
The Friends of the Canastota Public Library are busy preparing for this year's annual book sale. The sale, which will be held on October 25, 26 and 27 is certain to be one of the largest sales yet. The money raised through this sale will benefit the library's programs, collection and/or enhance the building and services that the library offers.
The Friends of the Library is made up of volunteers who have helped us to prepare for the sale and work the many hours of the sale. Several of our "friends" make raffle baskets to donate which are then raffled off for additional revenues. The library knitters have joined in the fun this year and have made some hand-crafted scarves, mittens, hats and other beautiful knitted items available for sale during the months of October and November. As well, Ralston Supply Company, a local business, is donating tables to be used for the event.
Although the library has a year-round ongoing book sale, this annual sale has a larger volume of items available. The sale offers patrons a chance to meet with old friends and purchase from a great selection of books, DVDs, VHS tapes, Audio Tapes and CDs. Individuals and families can also show their support of the library by joining the Friends of the Library. Membership for Individuals is just $3, while families can join the Friends group for $10 annually.
We hope you will come out to support your community library in Canastota! The times for the sale are:
I wear several different hats at the library. Sometimes, you can find me at the circulation desk. I also work with the teens creating and coordinating teen programming. And, I am always looking for new ways to get our library information out to our patrons. This is our first attempt at blogging and we hope that the community finds these blogs to be helpful!
