The principal purpose of the Friends of the Library is to raise added funds for the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library so that:
Proceeds from our Spring and Fall Book Sales benefit the Library’s programs and special projects. Most of the books are donated by members of our communities.
All Friends of J-MRL members can purchase up to $50 worth of materials before the first day of the sale. Scanners and other electronic devices will not be permitted at the members-only pre-sale. Items from the Valuable and Attractive list will not be available during the members-only pre-sale.
To become a member, see: http://jmrlfriends.org/join.
NOTE: No scanners or other electronic devices are permitted during the first three hours (10am to 1pm) of the first day of the book sale on Saturday, March 21.
Educators and social service representatives can select up to ten grocery bags worth of materials at no charge. Certification of instructional or organizational status may be requested. *The public at large is also invited to fill grocery bags for only $5. Bring your own bags! *
The dates of the sale have been arranged so that the sale coincides with the local schools’ spring break. Sale patrons will be able to park at Venable School on weekdays.
Proceeds benefit programs and services of the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library.
Thanks to all our fantastic volunteers and our wonderful Book Sale stalwarts, Bill and Andrew.
All your hardwork made our Fall 2014 Book Sale an record-setting success!
We made over $123,000! By comparison, our Spring 2014 sale made just over $98,000.
All this from 5,225 individual sales versus 5,045 at the Spring Sale.
