Friends of Calumet Library holding Used Book Sale July 2

CALUMET -- Friends of the Calumet Public Library are holding a Used Book Sale from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 2, in the CLK Multi-Purpose Room, located down the hall from the library. The sale is open to the public. Proceeds of this annual fundraiser go to support efforts of the Friends of the Calumet Public Library. When entering the building from the library parking lot, turn left and the multi-purpose room will be a few feet down the hall on your left.

Proceeds from this fundraiser go to sponsor library services and programs not provided for by the general library budget. In 2010-2011, funds were used to purchase large print books, a cart to assist in delivering books to elders in the community, many new titles for the children’s collection including board and picture books, novels for middle readers, as well as non-fiction titles for middle school, high school, and adult patrons. Funding also supports multiple titles for the Red Jacket Readers book club, and helps bring evening programs to the library throughout the year. This event is scheduled during Calumet’s PastyFest celebration -- family fun for everyone -- another reason to enjoy the day’s festivities!

For more information, visit the library or call 337-0311 ext. 1107.
