The Friends of the Northtown Library will be holding a book sale on October 21 and 22 to benefit our library. The sale begins at 10:00 a.m. on both days, and ends promptly at 4:00 p.m. Hardcovers, paperbacks, CDs, and DVDs will be available. And they’ll cost less than last year!
If you’d like to donate gently-used books, CDs, or DVDs, please do not put them in the book drops outside the Library. Instead, donations can be dropped off at the Front Desk. Be sure to indicate that they’re for the book sale. Materials in Urdu, Hindi, Arabic, Russian, Hebrew, Assyrian, and Spanish are especially sought for our multi-lingual community.
If you’re interested in helping with book sale set-up on October 14-15, please contact FriendsofNorthtown@gmail.com. We’ll soon have a Facebook page, too!
The Friends will be conducting a brief survey asking for information on how patrons use the Library. No names or addresses will be collected. The survey will be available in Arabic, Urdu, and Spanish as well as English.
We’d like to see the Friends truly represent West Ridge, so our membership form will also be available in several languages.
A Friends group for our younger patrons is under discussion; such membership would require parental permission but would be a good leadership opportunity for our teens.
Both survey and membership forms will be available at the Northtown Library the second week of October.
