Doors open at 9am on Friday, October 24 for the Friends of the Library’s annual, two-week-long, gigantic fall booksale. Only library cardholders will be able to purchase items on the first day of the sale so be sure to bring your Dover borrower’s card with you on the 24th! The sale opens to non-cardholders and the general public on Saturday, October 25.
Thousands of paperbacks, hardcover books, and media items for all ages will be available at prices from $.50 to $2.00. Many of the sale items are books donated to the library while others are items discarded from the library’s collections. Booksale prices will be further reduced on Wednesday, October 29, and during Week #2 of the booksale, November 3-8, the remainder of the items will be sold for the bargain price of just $1.00 per bag or boxful. Any leftover books will be given away for free beginning Monday, November 10.
All proceeds benefit the Friends of the Library, a 501(c)3 charitable organization which last year donated over $15,000 to the library for museum passes, children’s and adult programs, furnishings and equipment. Applications to join the Friends of the Library are available at the library’s circulation desk.
Membership is $10 annually or $7 for seniors. Friends who work at the booksale receive a 50% discount on purchases. Call 516-6050 for more information.
Library hours are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 9am to 8:30pm; Thursday and Friday 9am to 5:30pm; and Saturday 9am to 5pm. The Library will be closed on Tuesday, November 11 for the Veterans Day holiday.
