The Friends of the Case Memorial Library presents its first Summer GREAT Basement Book Sale from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
There’s a reason that the Friends of the Case Memorial Library call their annual fundraiser the GREAT! Book Sale.
Throughout the sale hours on Saturday, the library basement was abuzz with bargain hunters young and old seeking out books, CDs, DVDs, Record Albums and more.
We didn’t see anyone leave there empty-handed, some needed a cart and boxes to haul away their treasures.
The Friends organization is one of the town’s most dedicated groups, and they are accepting new members. The purpose of the organization, is to support the town library with programs and activities that enrich the normal library services.
The Friends provide scholarship money, museum passes, books for babies, special programs for children and adults, delivering items to homebound residents, and preparing the library for the town holiday festival.
All of the merchandise: books, tapes, records, CDs, videos, etc. are donated.
Thousands of items to choose from.
The Friends sells them at very reasonable prices. The money is used to purchase “extras” for the Library.
In the past they have purchased, among other things, a TV, a VCR, materials for the Children’s library, computer materials, a bike rack and many programs.
