The Friends of the South Burlington Public Library raised more than $3,000 at its three-day April book sale, which drew 270 people.
“Many patrons told us they love our sales because of the outstanding selection and low prices. We thank everyone who donated books and attended the sale. Our success depends on you,” said Sue Raatikainen, president of the Friends of the South Burlington Public Library.
Proceeds from all sales support library programs and events. This year The Friends funded four concerts, summer reading programs, the Cool Chemistry after-school program, staff development and eBooks for adults and teens.
The next big semi-annual sale will be held Oct.13-14. Members of the Friends can attend a presale on Oct.12 for the best selection of books. Members can also attend monthly meetings and help out with book sales.
Remember, you can support the Friends year-round by shopping in the book shop located on the second floor of the library anytime the library is open.
