Friends Plan Gigantic Book Sale
Your next treasure might be found at this exciting event. The Friends of the Birmingham Public Library, over three hundred members strong, are sponsoring a “Gigantic Book Sale” Friday and Saturday, June 3-4, at the library’s downtown location. The sale runs from 9:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. both days.
Items featured in the sale include pieces donated from private collections covering adult and children’s fiction and non-fiction, as well as DVD’s, CD’s, audio books, and videos. And it’s all for a good cause—proceeds will go towards the purchase of materials for our Birmingham libraries.
A special preview night for Friends’ members is slated for Thursday, June 2 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. The evening will include a silent auction of interesting and unusual books. Individuals are invited to join the Friends organization with a paid membership at the door.
The Friends of the Birmingham Public Library is a structured nonprofit association of individuals providing for various special needs of the Birmingham Public Library through community-based efforts. They attend to the library's needs, generate new ideas, offer advice and encouragement, volunteer their time and energy, and secure financial support.
For additional information about our sale, please visit the Friends’ website at http://friends.bplonline.org/ or call 205-226-3761.
