The Friends of the LPL Annual Spring Book Sale was held Saturday, April 15th. This sale, which included books for all age groups, some toys, and a few items of computer equipment, was a huge success! The Friends of the LPL express their sincere appreciation to Save-On Foods for their generous donation of re-usable bags. Importantly, the sale would not occur without the commitment of numerous volunteers who work diligently to set the books out, keep them organized during the sale, and then, clean up the room after the sale. Of course, we also thank the many book buyers who came out to support our sale by filling their bags with good books. This weekend we achieved one of our goals, that is, to put good books in the hands of readers of all ages.
Gently used books and DVD’s, donated by Lethbridge residents and deselected from the Library collections, can be purchased at the Friends’ “store” which is called the Booktique. Payment is made at the Customer Service Counters.
Find Booktique on the bridge between the north and south wings of the Main Library and at the Crossings Branch Library.
