Prelude To Summer Book Sale

Victor Hugo once said, “A library implies an act of faith.”

The resilience of modern Libraries and how we move forward in this technological age will discern the level of our active investment in the future.

It promises that the responsibility and development of the collection, as well as the distribution of knowledge, will lie securely in the hands of those who would protect and cherish it.

At Lakewood Public Library we take the future very seriously, which is why we are so proud and invested in the programming that we provide.

Recently we have been given a fantastic opportunity to host a display in the Main Library building, up in the second-floor gallery, under the name Traveling Stanzas.

This amazing exhibit features beautifully raw immigrant poetry and also facilitates an opportunity to create your own poems using blackout poetry with some state of the art equipment.

All of these opportunities are funded by the extraordinary Friends of the Library.

They work so hard to raise money for our programming via the Book sales, which we hold at the Main Library every few months.

The upcoming Prelude to Summer Sale will also be a Bag-Sale and will take place on Saturday, May 18, 2019, 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, May 16, 2019 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 at a normal price.

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 at the door of the book sale.

Happy summer everyone!
