Friends of Library Book Sale May 5



The Friends of the La Mirada Public Library, or “Friends of the Library” (FOL), will host its next semi-annual Book Sale on Saturday, May 5, 2012, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  The fundraising event will be held at the La Mirada Activity Center, 13810 La Mirada Blvd. (behind the fire station), in the City of La Mirada.

The book sale will offer a wide selection of quality secondhand hardcover and paperback books as well as audio and video materials at bargain prices.  Beginning at 1:30 p.m., customers may buy bags to fill with books for only $3.00 per bag.

“As always, we will have a fantastic variety of materials for patrons to choose from,” said FOL ways and means vice president Cathy Ferrin.  “Everyone from young readers to senior learners will find something that will appeal to them at affordable prices.”

Proceeds from FOL book sales and other projects are used to support the library in different ways.  “The money we raise,” explained FOL president Malena Hough, “helps to supplement the library’s book and magazine collections and present live shows for children and the community.”

“We invite anyone who shares our passion for the library to join the Friends of the La Mirada Public Library,” Hough said.  Information about FOL is available at the library and the book sale.

The Friends of the La Mirada Public Library, Inc., is a nonprofit association of community-minded individuals committed to focusing public attention on the library’s services, facilities, and needs, and to encouraging and facilitating gifts and donations in support of the library.
