Friends of Portage Lake District Library to hold Harvest Book Sale Nov. 14, 15

HOUGHTON -- The Friends of the Portage Lake District Library invite all book lovers to their Harvest Book Sale from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday evening, Nov. 14, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15.

New and gently used books for children and adults will be sold to raise money for library projects and items that the Friends provide. The selection of books is excellent and will make great gifts for the holidays. Shoppers and browsers will have organic chocolates to sample and enjoy.

Projects that the Friends of the Library have done include buying books, furniture, the Children’s Listening Center, computers, and other materials. Proceeds from book sales also pay for annual events sponsored by the Friends of the Library including the Salsa Contest, the Summer’s Bounty Social, Scrabble Tournaments, Blind Date with a Book, and the Friendship Tea. Information on how to become involved with the Friends will be available at the book sale.

For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit
