Friends of Chester Public Library Summer Used Book Sale

The Friends of Chester Public Library are seeking donations of gently used print and recorded books, DVDs, and CDs for their upcoming book sale.  Please drop off your donations at the library, during open hours, between now and Wednesday, June 1.  Textbooks published after 2005 may be donated for The American Friends of Kenya, but please, no encyclopedias, or musty, fusty items suffering from lengthy incarceration in a damp basement.   
And speaking of keeping it fresh, there’s a new twist to the Friends Summer Book Sale  this year.  Members of the Friends are invited to attend a members-only sale and reception on Thursday, June 2 from 6-8 p.m.    ‘First dibs’ on the sale books will be accompanied by refreshments, door prizes and the chance to rub elbows with other library supporters.  Membership forms were included in the recent issue of The Bookmark, which we hope you noticed in your mailbox recently, and forms are available at the library.  But wait, you can join that evening, as well.   Come  show your support for your library…. it’ll be fun!
On Friday, June 3 at 10 a.m., the doors will open for the traditional  summer sale of great beach blanket reading.  Anyone interested in assisting with the sale, either with sorting or selling is asked to contact Diane Lindsay at 860-526-2443.  Thank you for your support.
