Friends of the Oak Ridge Public Library will have its Spring 2017 Book Sale May 11-14 in the Oak Ridge Public Library Auditorium.
The sale will include fiction and nonfiction books, magazines, audiovisual materials, and other publications covering almost every subject, a press release said. A few non-publication items will also be available. Most titles are 50 cents or $1 each. Titles withdrawn from the Library are half-price Thursday through Saturday. The Silent Auction begins on Thursday evening and ends at 5 p.m. Saturday.
Thursday evening from 5 to 7:30 p.m. is a preview sale for members. Memberships will be available at the door ($5 per individual, and $10 per family). (Scanning devices cannot be used during the preview sale on Thursday.)
The sale opens to the general public on Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday’s sale is from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. with all non-auction titles selling for half price, the press release said. Sunday is the Buy-A-Bag of Books sale from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. with each bag (provided by Friends of the Oak Ridge Public Library) costing $3. Scanning devices may be used during these sale days.
Credit cards, cash, and personal checks can be used to pay for purchases.
Proceeds from book sales and memberships fund the Children’s Summer Program at the Library. During the past year, proceeds have also been used to support the Center for Oak Ridge Oral History (COROH) program, purchase furniture, and fill other requests from the Library.
Donations of books, videos, CDs, audiocassettes, DVDs, and other publications are welcome any time. They can be left in the enclosed area behind the Library’s book return slot on the Oak Ridge Turnpike side of the building.
