Above: Whether you plan to spend time relaxing at the beach or chilling at home, you’ll want to stock up on some good books for the summer. (images left cropped from pics posted to flicker top to bottom by Josué Goge and Nate Davis; photo right by Beth Melo)

It’s a good time to stock up for summer reading. That’s why Friends of the Southborough Library are holding our annual June book sale next week.* 

Plan to stop by the library on Saturday, June 11th, 10:00 am-3:00 pm. (If you’d like to lend a volunteering hand, scroll down for details.**)

June Book Sale flyerYou can pick up some paperbacks, hardcovers, or even CDs and DVDs. You can also buy a new Friends tote bag (or bring your old one) to take advantage of the stuff a bag deal.

If you have kids, be sure to bring them by to pick out one free book each!

Proceeds are also used by The Friends for items the library’s budget can’t cover.

That includes purchasing most of the Library’s free or discount museum and park passes for the community. The Friends also sponsor many programs for children, teens and adults, fund supplies for the seed exchange program, and occasionally pay for equipment, furniture, and other resources.

If you are looking to support the Friends’ efforts, here are some additional ways you can help us:*

  • Donate items for the sale
  • Purchase fudge through our Fundraiser (going on through June 8th)
  • Re-up your annual membership (or join us)
  • Come out to our Annual Meeting this Wednesday, June 8th, 7:30 pm at the Library

*[I should note for readers who aren’t aware – I’m the President of the Friends of the Southborough Library.]

**We welcome volunteers to help us set up (starting at 9:00 am) or packup (starting at 3:00 pm). If you’d like to help out during sale hours by taking a 1-2 hour shift, please email djmtremblay@verizon.net.

Hey Beth: my husband tried to drop off used books at the library first floor about a week ago and was told that they were not accepting books for the sale. Not sure if the librarian down there didnt know or what…

I just checked. I don’t know who you spoke with, but all staff should be informed that they are accepting the donations. (Maybe there was confusion/miscommunication around where they should be placed?)

The conations can be left on the tables inside by the first floor entrance.
