“Friends of The La Mirada Library” Book Sale May 4

The Friends of the La Mirada Public Library (Friends of the Library or FOL) will host its next semi-annual Book Sale on Saturday, May 4, 2013, 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-basement prices. Beginning at 1:30 p.m., customers may buy bags to fill with books for only $3.00 per bag.

We are very excited about offering a wide variety of materials to the public at low cost, said Hal Malkin, FOL’s Ways and Means vice president. Everyone from young readers to senior learners will find something that will appeal to them at affordable prices.

In addition to the Saturday sale, FOL is presenting its first members-only pre-sale opportunity on Friday, May 3, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., also at the Activity Center. FOL members will be able to purchase items from the sale inventory before the general public. Non-members may join FOL ($10 membership fee) at the pre-sale to take advantage of the early bird shopping opportunity.

Proceeds from FOL’s book sales and other projects are used to support the library in different ways. The money we raise, explained President Malena Avila Hough, helps to supplement the library’s book collection 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, she said. Information about FOL is available at the library and the book sale.
