The Friends Of LPL Book Sale Returns In June

The Friends of Lakewood Public Library are having their next big sale just in time for that beautiful summer day when it is just you and a porch swing with a warm breeze and a great book.

The Members Only Preview Sale (not a bag sale) is Thursday, June 8, 2017 from 6 to 9 p.m. You can join the Friends at the door for as little as two dollars to participate.

The Friends’ Bag Sale is Saturday, June 10, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fill a large grocery bag to the brim with books for only three dollars! With our “Book Transporters” available to cart large purchases to your automobile, you don’t need to worry about finding too many bargains, either. Both sales take place in the Main Basement Friends’ Book Sale Area. Only cash and checks are accepted.

Browse through a great selection of bestselling authors, classics, poetry, cookbooks, children’s books, gardening books, romances, self-help and magazines. There are CDs for music lovers and DVDs of popular movies for sale. A special local interest section featuring Cleveland and Cuyahoga County, Great Lakes Shipping and works by local authors will also be on display.

The Friends of Lakewood Public Library pay for nearly all of the Library’s concerts, films, lectures and publications with no source of revenue other than deep discount book sales and two dollar membership dues. Some of the books on sale have been retired from the Library’s collection; most items are donated to the Friends by your friends and neighbors to keep this Lakewood tradition going strong.

We ask you to please help by dropping off donations of all kinds, from books and magazines, to DVDs and VHS tapes. Your gift is tax deductible.
