Friends group hosts book sale
March 5, 2014
The Friends of the Newcastle Library will host its annual book sale March 26-29.
The sale begins March 26 for paid members of the Friends group. Only members will be allowed to purchase books that day, from 3-9 p.m. Memberships will be available at the library door.
It continues through Saturday with sales open to the public. The sale begins at 10 a.m. the three remaining days, but wraps up at 9 p.m. March 27, at 6 p.m. March 28 and at 5 p.m. March 29.
The funds raised from the book sale will allow the Friends group to sponsor programming at the Newcastle Library. The King County Library System offers a base level of programming for all of its locations, but anything on top of that must get funded locally.
The four-day sale takes place at the Newcastle Library, 12901 Newcastle Way. The Friends group is seeking volunteers to help with setup; email NewcastleLibraryFriends@comcast.net to get involved. Only cash or checks will be accepted at the event.
The Friends of the Newcastle Library gladly accept donations of gently used books throughout the year. Simply bring them to the library’s front desk. They also have an ongoing book sale where patrons can purchase materials for just $1 every day.
