2019 Spring Book Sale

Friends of the Flint Memorial Book Sale is May 8-11

Please Donate Your Books from May 4-6

The Friends of the Flint Memorial Library Spring Book Sale is coming May 8-11, and we need your help!

The Friends request that community members please donate books in good condition at the Library Activity Room, 147 Park Street, North Reading during the following times:

Saturday, May 4, 12 pm-4 pm;

Sunday, May 5, 10 am-2 pm;

Monday, May 6, 10 am-4 pm.

Due to space limitations, the Friends regret that donations cannot be accepted before these dates.

New for this sale the Friends will partner with More Than Words, a job training and youth development program that employs 350 young people each year. The Friends request a $1 donation with your book drop off to defray costs associated with this important partnership, which provides a vehicle to donate books remaining after the sale while supporting at-risk youth.

The book sale will take place on the following dates:

Wednesday, May 8, 10 am-5 pm;

Thursday, May 9, 10 am-8 pm;

Friday, May 10, 10 am-5 pm;

Saturday, May 11, 9 am-3 pm.

Donating and purchasing books supports library programs, including children’s summer reading and special guests, technology, and museum passes not funded by the town’s operating budget.

Please review the following donation guidelines to help us have a great sale:

What to donate?  Books in great shape that you would buy at a book sale for yourself, your family, or to gift– both adult and children’s. Very clean books especially wanted—both fiction and non-fiction. Books you loved and would like to share. College textbooks only.

What NOT to donate?  Books in poor condition, smelly, moldy, or heavily marked. Textbooks (except for college texts), encyclopedias, condensed books, CDs, VHS tapes, magazines, travel books more than 5 years old, computer books more than 2 years old.

The Friends of the Flint Memorial Library appreciate the community’s support.

Thank you for supporting the library!
