Support Davie County Public Library by Joining the Friends of the Library!
The Friends of the Davie County Library Fall Book Sale Fundraiser will be October 16-18. Anyone can join at the door, and F.O.L. members receive a discount of 50% off all our regularly priced books throughout the sale.
All teachers get a $1 off any membership fee or renewal.
A $3 “fill-a-bag” sale will be held from 2-4 p.m. on our last day. We provide the bags.
You can still donate books anytime by dropping them off at the library. We especially need to replenish our stock of children’s books. Many teachers shop our sales in order to supply their classrooms with supplemental reading materials and we always are sure to give them a great deal. We also donate many of the books we receive to classrooms and community groups after our sales, so you can always be sure that the books you are done reading will go on to be well used and well-loved by others!
We are a 501c3 organization, so let us know if your donation requires a receipt.
The funds from F.O.L.’s booksales are always used to support our library’s services and programs for youth and adults. This year, we helped our library to purchase updated computers for the Cooleemee branch, sponsored the Summer Reading Program’s party, and helped our library celebrate National Library Week!
Future projects include sponsoring an “Author’s Talk” and organizing a writer’s “Hangout” group for local authors, as well as providing a Fall Appreciation Day for the library’s staff and volunteers.
We still need help with setting up for the book sale on Thursday, October 15, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and need help during the sale, as well as with clean-up Sunday, October 18 from 4-5:30 p.m. We will serve pizza to our clean-up crew!
Volunteers who help us set up at the sale will get to shop early for books!
- Friday, October 16, 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
- Saturday, October 17, 9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
- Sunday, October 18, 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.
If you have questions or want to help, contact Merit at 293-3477 or email email@example.com.
We hope to see you at the sale this week!
