‘Friends’ in Middletown to hold sale on June 16

It’s sale time again; I see bags of donated books and comings and goings by Friends volunteers when I shelve on Saturdays at the Middletown Gibson Library.

Friends of the Middletown Gibson Library is having its semi-annual book sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 16 at the Middletown Library. The sale coincides with the Middletown Days celebration.

I love Friends sales; in addition to supporting libraries,  I often discover great books.

According to a press release from Friends, a grocery bag full of books will cost $5 and paperbacks will cost $3 per bag. Books for sale include best sellers, children’s books, mysteries, spy novels, romance, cookbooks, self-help, reference and audio books.

Some selected quality books will be sold individually. Proceeds from the sale will be used to purchase new books and learning materials for the new library.

Friends is also in need of volunteers to help with set up at 7:30 a.m. and with take-down at 4 p.m.

Setup involves moving boxes of books on hand trucks to appropriate tables, setting up tables, tent awnings, signs and general help.  The 4 p.m. crew does all of the above in reverse.

Anyone who can help with setup or take-down is asked to show up at either time. For more information, contact Friends of the Middletown Gibson Library Secretary Fran Rand at 707-987-8546.
