CHESTERTON | The Friends of Westchester Public Library needs help to sort books and set up their Spring Book Sale, from 9 a.m. to noon April 13.
Although many books are already sorted and boxed for the sale, the Friends still have hundreds of volumes to categorize and many boxes of books to move and to arrange on the sale tables. Books are typically sorted by type of binding, condition and subject.
Volunteers are asked to come to the second floor of the Thomas Library, 200 W. Indiana Ave., to help. Volunteers do not need to be a member of the Friends.
Volunteers are also needed throughout the week of April 15, to help sort last minute donations, and also during the hours of the sale.
The sale will begin with the Friends Only Preview Sale from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on April 19. The public sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 20 and 21.
Donations for the sale may be brought to the collection box in the lobby of the Thomas Library. Donations are collected year round and donated items are reviewed for possible addition to the library’s collection before being placed in the sale.
The Friends of Westchester Public Library wish to thank all of the people who make their sales successful by volunteering or by attending the sales and purchasing materials. Proceeds from the sale support many supplemental and special programming events.
