Friends of Calumet Library to hold used book sale June 28

CALUMET -- Friends of the Calumet Public Library will hold a used book sale from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 28, in the CLK Multi-Purpose Room, located down the hall from the library. The sale is open to the public.

Featuring a wide variety of books, CDs and DVDs, the sale is the annual fund raiser for Friends of the Calumet Public Library. The CLK Multi-Purpose Room is located down the hall from the 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.) The book sale is scheduled during Calumet’s PastyFest celebration -- family fun for everyone -- another reason to enjoy the day’s festivities!*

Proceeds from this fundraiser go to sponsor library services and programs not provided for by the general library budget. In 2013-2014, funds were used to purchase large-print books, multiple titles for the Red Jacket Readers book club, and many new books including additions to the children’s, young adult, and adult collections. Funding also helps bring evening programs at the library throughout the year and the Friends assisted with the renovation of the library’s community room by providing funds for the purchase of the new floor. 

If you have gently-read books or other materials to donate to this event, please bring them to the library prior to Friday, June 27.

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