Warm weather gets everyone outside, but don’t forget your reading material for the beach or those few rainy days! The Friends of the Hyde Park Branch Library’s semi-annual Book and Media Sale will be held Friday and Saturday, June 8 and 9, from 10am to 3pm, in the Hyde Park Branch Library’s Menino Hall.
Hyde Park Friends members are invited to attend our evening members-only Preview reception on Thursday, June 7, from 6-8pm. Renew your membership or join that evening!
Sale offerings include hardcover and paperback books for adults and children, as well as videos/DVDs, tapes/CDs, and premium books for discriminating book lovers. Prices range from $.25 to $1.00; premium books are priced as marked OR your best offer! The Friends will again offer tasty bits to refresh you while browsing our tables. A variety of edibles and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for sale at our baked goods table.
Even if you can’t come on the sale days, you can still help the Friends and the branch library! Drop off your donations of books in good saleable condition on the bench nearest the elevator at the branch library, or sign up at the circulation desk to help us sort book donations and set up between June 4 and 7.
All proceeds from the book sale will be used by the Friends to support music and other programs at the branch library. Programs at the library are open to all ages and free.
