The Friends of the Library’s Summer Book Sale – June 8th

Book bargains for summer reading and one free book per child. Plus a Bake Sale. (And let us know if you can volunteer to help.)

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 a week from tomorrow.*

Plan to stop by the library on Saturday, June 8th, 10:00 am-3:00 pm. (If you’d like to lend a volunteering hand, scroll down for details.**)

Those of you who have an old Friends tote bag will want to bring it with you to take advantage of our stuff a bag deal.

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

In addition, volunteers are planning to bake up some goodies for us to sell.

Proceeds are 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.
