Friends of the Northtown Library Off to a Good Start

The newly-organized Friends of the Northtown Library held its first meeting on September 3, and plans for a November book sale are well underway. Under the chairmanship of Peter Sifnotis, the group decided on the following Fall schedule:

General Meeting        Tuesday, September 29          6:30 p.m.
Book Sale Meeting    Tuesday, October 20               6:30 p.m.  [Corrected Date]
Book Sale                  Thursday, November 12          3 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Book Sale                   Friday, November 13              10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

The Northtown Library is already accepting donations for the book sale. Please drop off your contributions and be sure bags and cartons are clearly marked “For the Friends Book Sale.” Hardback and paperback books, CDs, DVDs, and cassettes are welcome, but please — no encyclopedias or magazines.

The book sale itself will span two days. The meeting on Tuesday, September 29, will plan and organize the various committees needed to ensure a successful event. The group’s fundraising will support the library’s programs.  The annual programming budget for the library is only $170 for the year (yes, that’s correct). The Friends hope to raise enough money at this first book sale to give the library staff some badly-needed funds to create additional programming and events.

Membership in the Friends of the Northtown Library is open to everyone. You can sign up at either of the meetings, or contact Pete for more information (910/478-5267).
