Donations Days for Friends Book Sale The Friends of the Great Falls Public Library announced that they will be holding special book donation days in preparation for their annual used book sale held in May. The dates of this year’s sale are May 14, 15, 17, & 18.
If you have items you’d like to donate for this sale, you can bring in those donations on one of the scheduled donation days. The advantage of the donation days is especially noticeable for those with more than a small donation. On these scheduled donation days, you bring your items to the library’s garage, in the alley behind the building. Volunteers will be available to assist, especially with transferring donations from your car to the building.
Dates for the donation days are as follows:
· Saturday, Jan. 25, 10 am – 2 pm
· Saturday, Feb. 22, 10 am – 2 pm
· Saturday, March 22, 10 am – 2 pm
· Saturday, April 26 10 am – 2 pm
All donations are appreciated, but the Friends will not accept the following:
· Items in poor condition· Magazines· Encyclopedias· Condensed Reader’s Digests· Textbooks
You can bring your donations into the library anytime during operating hours, but assistance cannot be guaranteed except on scheduled donation days.Proceeds from the book sale are used to sponsor special library programs and projects that the library’s budget cannot cover. Anyone interested in more details, volunteering for the book sale or donating books can contact Jude Smith at 453-0349 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
