The sale is organized and run entirely by volunteers and all books are donated. Every penny raised goes to the Fernandina Beach Library.
The Friends of the Fernandina Beach Library’s annual fall Book Sale kicks off
Thursday, November 6, with a special FOL members-only preview from 5pm – 7pm at the Peck Center Gym, 516 South 10th Street. If you’re not a member, you’re invited to join at the door and get first choice of thousands of the books and many other items for sale. Membership is $15 for students; $35 for individuals, $50 for a couple or $75 for a family.
The doors will open to all on Friday, November 7 from 9:30 am – 6 pm, and Saturday, November 8 from 9:30 am-2 pm. Books are carefully organized for easy browsing in dozens of categories including fiction, biographies, history, art, children’s books, sports, cooking and more, plus CDs, DVDs and audio books. Most are priced at $2.00 or less.
The sale is organized and run entirely by volunteers. All books are donated and every penny raised provides the Fernandina Beach Library with new books, e-books, subscriptions, periodicals, network access and databases for jobs, resumes, certification tests for various careers, and more. In the past two years alone, FOL book sales have contributed more than $50,000 to supplement library collections.
Friends of the Library is also raising funds to purchase furniture, equipment, collection upgrades, replacement windows and other items for the enlarged library on N 4th St. that is expected to open in late February. Information will be available at the book sale. You can also learn about FOL membership and how to donate and help, at www.fernandinaFOL.org, (904) 321-6529 or e-mail info@fernandinaFOL.org.
