Spring Book Sale for Summit County Libraries starts Friday

Have your bookshelves have been looking a little lonely lately? If so, you’re in luck. The Summit County Friends of the Library hold the Spring Book Sale this Friday from noon to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Buffalo Mountain Room in the Main Branch in Frisco. All proceeds benefit Summit County Libraries and library programs.

“We have a lot of stuff,” said Joyce Dierauer, library director for Summit County Libraries. “The room we keep everything in is full to the brim, and I probably have another 30 boxes in the back room to haul out.”

Dierauer said all the books for sale are duplicate donations – the library receives thousands of donations a year – and old editions. This is the first of three sales the Friends hold every year.

On Friday, hardcover books, books on CD and DVDs will be $2. Paperbacks, books on tape and videos will be $1. On Saturday, all prices will be cut in half. In a last-ditch effort to get rid of anything left on Saturday afternoon, attendees can buy one bag of books for $3, or two for $5, after 3 p.m.

“All the money goes directly to the Friends, and then they turn around and spend it in a whole variety of ways,” Dierauer said.

In the past, the Friends have contributed to the Young Adult Reading Program, paid for a new cabinet at the Main Library, and paid in part for a digital color copier.

“They buy books, DVDs and CDs all year long,” Dierauer said. “To the tune of $7,000 or $8,000 a year.”

If you are available at any of these times, and would like to help out, contact Dierauer, at (970) 668-5555 or joyced@co.summit.co.us. To learn more of other volunteer opportunities and how you can help the Summit County Libraries, visit http://www.co.summit.co.us/library
