Art Festival Book Sale

On August 5 the Annual Lakewood Arts Festival will be held in downtown Lakewood, and the Library will be hosting the Art Festival Book Sale. The sale will take place in the Main Library basement from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. so we invite you inside to enjoy a little air conditioning and to browse all of our bargain priced treasures waiting for you here.

As always, we have our valued Friends of Lakewood Public Library to thank for their time and for making our book sales a possibility.They are truly some of the most dedicated and resourceful people around, and their sacrifices ensure the best quality for our patrons as they go through all of our many donations. We have everyone to thank for the genuine spirit of giving.There is so much support from our Lakewood community, and we receive such thoughtful donations that help the Library continue to meet the high standards that can be expected when you cross over the threshold of our institution and also bring you the spectacular entertainment and educational programing of which we are so proud.

Over the year, our Friends have collected and saved a number of really beautiful art books to be showcased for this particular sale. They will be in the Big Better Book area that is located in the lobby in front of the elevators. We have quite a few really special books that were recently donated for this sale as well. They are about seafaring vessels and feature boats from ancient times to modern military and commercial ships as well as books about famous shipwrecks.

Although this is the only book sale we have without a preview sale, for those who wish to sign up and become a member of the Friends; the membership fee is only $3.00 a year and may be purchased at our main circulation desk, through the mail, through the library’s website at or even at the door of the book sale.Happy summer everyone!
