2017 Book Sale

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Our 2017 Book Sale was a great success! We sold a record number of books and we could not have done it without our amazing volunteers.

Thank you to everyone that came to the sale! We hope you found lots of great items. It is thanks to YOU that we are able to donate money to the library year round, to help with purchases and programs.

If you have a moment, please take our 10 question survey about the sale. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZZLFPXZ
It shouldn’t take very long and we’d really like a variety of feedback. One lucky survey taker will win a new PFOL tote bag plus their choice of 2 books from the PFOL store in the library. Drawing: 11/18/17

2017 Book Sale Prep

The PFOL board is busy making preparations for the annual book sale in October. Now is the time to let us know if you’d like to volunteer at the sale. We need all the help we can get moving thousands and thousands of books, setting books out on tables, tallying sales, taking money, and cleaning up after. It’s a BIG job!

If you plan to purchase or renew your membership at the Members Only preview sale on Thursday, October 12, consider downloading the membership form here and bringing it with you that evening. Additionally, you can visit our Online Store  to make donations, renew your membership, and purchase event tickets.
