That’s right! The Friends of the Virginia Public Library Book Sale is back! Here’s what you need to know about this event:
When is the Fall Book & Media Sale?
September 25 – September 27; from when the library opens until an hour before the library closes. Friends of the Library members get early access to the sale on September 24 from 3-5pm – so if you want to get to the sale before everyone else, consider becoming a Friends member!
What can I get at the Fall Book & Media Sale?
There will be many books at the book sale, including fiction, mystery, science fiction, and fantasy, nonfiction books, children’s, and teen books. The use of the word “media” also means the sale will feature other items, including DVDs, CDs, and Audio books!
Is there a bag sale?
Due to popular demand, the Friends of the Library will be offering $15 book bags which you can fill with books for the single bag price! You also get to keep the library bags, along with whatever books you fill the bag with! You do not have to bring a bag with you – the bags are available to purchase at the door.
Is there a bake sale?
Due to more popular demand, the Friends of the Library will also be offering baked goods for sale in the hallway leading to the book sale. Bring your spare change for some tasty treats to eat while you browse the book sale’s collection!
Can I donate items for the Book Sale?
Yes! If you have books or media items that are in good condition (no rips, tears, stains, or mold!) you can bring your items in to the library between September 3 and September 26!
How can I help with the Book Sale?
All proceeds from the book sale go directly toward events and programs at the library – so buying at the book sale is a great way to support your library!
If you want to help even more, consider joining the Friends of the Library! Not only do you get into the sale early, but you also get first notice on great events happening at the library. Interested? Talk to a Friends member, or your librarian today!
If you are already a Friends of the Library member we could use your help for the book sale! Please call the library if you want to help out, and we will let you know what help is still needed. Thank you for your help and support!
