Right on the heels of our Summer Concerts is the Friends of the Hyde Park Branch Library’s annual Fall Book and Media Sale on Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1, 2016, 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, September 28, from 5pm-7:30pm. 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 $3.00; premium books are priced as marked OR your best offer!
It’s not too late to donate books to our sale! Please place books in bags or boxes on the bench near the first floor elevator at the branch library. For very large book and media donations, kindly let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a pick-up. 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 are free.
Don’t forget to Save the Date! October 22, 2016, from 7:00pm to 10:00pm, is set for our fundraiser event of the year at the branch library. Highlighting Hyde Park’s late resident artist, the John J. Enneking Centennial Bookmark Ball is not to be missed! Framed reproductions of his artwork will be auctioned off that evening, and the ball is a great opportunity to view the recently acquired Isaac Caliga portrait of Enneking.
