The Friends of Winslow Public Library will host their 17th annual Book Sale Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 18-20, at the Elks Auditorium at Third and Berry in Winslow.
Thousands of donated books, videos and music items will be on sale at bargain prices, including children’s items at five for a dollar.
A members’ Preview Sale is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, and anyone is invited to take out a membership at the door.
The sale is open to all from 12 to 7 p.m. on Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. A special price will be in effect on Saturday: fill a box for $3.
The Friends of Winslow Public Library is a 501(c)3 non-profit, all volunteer organization, that has supported the library and served Winslow since 1995.
FOL contributions to the library and community in 2012 include two beautiful red benches, a bike rack and litter container, sponsorship of many library summer prizes, programs and movie nights, a flat file cabinet for maps, an evening with Lindbergh expert Erik Berg, and a library dragon.
The Friends invite the community to become members, to volunteer to assist with the book sale and other events, to donate books, movies and music, and to collect aluminum cans for recycling by the Friends.
