MILLSBORO — The Friends of the Millsboro Public Library are starting to organize for their July book sale. The Friends spend several months sorting donations so that during the sale books are organized and easy for buyers to browse.
The annual book sale is the Friends’ major fundraiserprofits are used primarily for the children’s summer reading program. Other items, not part of the library’s budget, are often funded by the Friends.
New books have recently been purchased, along with an arts and crafts storage area for the children to use upon their return to the facility.
Book donors are encouraged to gather any books already read. The following books will be accepted: hardback fiction, nonfiction, paperbacks and children’s books. Also accepted are DVDs and complete jigsaw puzzles (boxes must be taped shut and all pieces included). Drop off any donations in May or June on Tuesday mornings (9 a.m.-1 p.m.) or Thursday afternoons (2 p.m.-6 p.m.) curbside at the library at 219 State St. in Millsboro.
Watch for sale dates to be announced in the near future. For additional information, contact Jan Thompson at 732-3216 or Peg Buzzelli at 934-1113.
