The Friends of the Washington-Centerville Public Library invites citizens to attend its 2nd annual book sale on April 26th from 5-8 PM and April 27 - 28th from 10 AM – 5 PM at Southminster Presbyterian Church, 7001 Far Hills Avenue. Thousands of hardback and paperback books for all ages, movies, CDs and videogames will be available for 50 cents to $2, with all proceeds going to the Friends of Washington-Centerville Public Library. “The amount and quantity of items we have for sale this year is outstanding! Citizens can get great deals on books, movies, videogames and more while supporting a worthwhile cause,” says Peter Adams, book sale chairman and Vice-President of the Friends group.
The first evening of the sale, Thursday April 26th, is open to Friends members only and memberships can be purchased on site for $5 (Centerville/Washington Township residents) or $10 (non-residents). A $20 Author’s Circle membership is also available and includes a $5 off coupon redeemable at the book sale.
Last year’s book sale and membership drive raised more than $9000. “The book sale is our biggest fundraiser. In 2011, money raised from the sale enabled us to help the Washington-Centerville Public Library purchase $7500 worth of ebook readers and data projectors for training the public and computers loaded with educational software for kids,” comments Mr. Adams.
