Lighting Up Lakewood, With A Book Sale

The unassuming town of Lakewood Ohio boasts over fifty thousand residents.

That is an astounding number for a quaint little town in the Midwest, and you might wonder, “What is it that brings all of these people to one place?” Some might say it is because we are home to so many diverse, fascinating, quirky, unconventional, beautiful people, and that we are a community who holds diversity, acceptance, and inclusion in the highest esteem.

I think another reason to love Lakewood is the Lakewood Public Library. Multiple times a year, the Friends of Lakewood Public Library host a book sale. The upcoming sale will be in congruence with the annual observance of Light Up Lakewood and will also be a bag sale. It is being held on Saturday, December 1, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the lower level of the Main Library, with the preview sale being held on Thursday, November 29, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. It should be noted that the preview sale will not be a bag sale, and all items will be a normal price.

The sale is sponsored by the Friends of the Lakewood Public Library, who not only commit themselves tirelessly but also free of charge, to the mission of providing beautiful recycled treasures, to the people of this fabulous city. This coming sale will have a great selection of vintage children's books, sheet music, and a display of books on space, most of the space books will be only 50 cents, and the children's books are in fantastic condition.

As always, patrons have the option of renewing their memberships for 2019 at this sale.

So, let’s continue to celebrate both the tenacious attitude of our city, and the many irreplaceable members of this community, as we come together to make Lakewood the fantastic place it is.
