Fernandina Beach, FL – If you’d like to help your local library and meet some interesting new people, how about volunteering to help with the next Friends of the Library Book Sale scheduled for March 21 – 23, 2013, at the Peck Center on S. 10th Street?
This 100% volunteer, community-wide effort involves sorting close to 20,000 donated books, CDs, DVDs and items for children in the weeks before the sale; and set-up, organization, cashiering and straightening-up on the days of the sale. If you’d like to volunteer, contact Gigi Feazell at 277-3510 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Strong helpers are especially needed to help with set-up on Thursday and close down on Saturday afternoon.
These semi-annual book sales raise the bulk of the Friends’ annual grants to the Fernandina Beach Library. Last year, the FOL contributed $25,000 to fund books, e-books and periodicals, databases, network access and technology including databases used to complete job applications, develop resumes and take certification tests for various careers.
If you have items to donate, leave them in the colorful collection box under the covered walkway in front of Peck Head Start at 511 S. 11th Street, in Fernandina Beach.
A collection area for larger donations is in the Peck School 516 South 10th Street. Go in the front entrance (Fir Street between S. 10th and S. 11th Streets), turn right and look for the Friends of the Library sign on your left, next to the stairwell.
With most items priced at $2.00 or less, these book sales are very popular. For first choice among the thousands of items, plan to attend the Friends of the Library Members Only preview sale, Thursday, November 1 from 5 – 7pm. If you aren’t a member, you can join at the door.
The sale will be open to all Friday March 22nd, from 9:30am – 6pm, and Saturday from 9:30am – 2pm.
There will be ‘fire-sale’ markdowns on Saturday afternoon.
