The Friends of the Library $5.00-a-Bag Book Sale

Dave Burton talking to Pat Palmer, President of the Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library will be continuing their $5.00-a-Bag Book sale this week in the downstairs Meeting Room of the Milford Public Library.  The sale hours will be 9:00 am to 8:00pm on weekdays and 7:00 am to 2 pm on Saturday of this week, November 15- 20.  The $5.00-a-Bag Book sale has hundreds of books covering many topics, audio and video tapes, as well as bric-a-brac.
The money from the sale will be used to support programs for the local library.  The Friends of the Library, a volunteer organization, has donated $75,000 to the new edition of the library through their fundraisers to date. All 12,000 books included in the sale have been donated by the community. As of yesterday by noon, the sale had already generated the purchase of 50-60 bags of books. President Pat Palmer commented that “the community has been extraordinarily supportive of all of our books sales.”
The Friends of the Milford Library are just getting back in action after a two year hiatus due to construction taking place at the library.  The group will have 6 books sales throughout the next year; 3 large and 3 small ones.  President Palmer describes the difference between the two “At the larger book sales we sell individual books that are in very good condition with newer, more popular authors,” she said. “The smaller book sales provide an assortment of many wonderful books from numerous authors and periods.” 
The Friends of the Milford Library’s next sale will be during the downtown Holiday Stroll on December 3 and People’s Day on December 4.
