The Friends of the Highland Library will kick off its fall fund-raising event with a three-day book sale at the Highland Township Public Library that will run through Saturday, Sept. 15.
Sue Anderson, treasurer of the Friends of the Highland Library group, said more than 5,000 books will be available for purchase during the annual fund-raiser, including many paperback fiction books and a variety of non-fiction selections.
Books donated to the Friends of the Highland Library are checked for quality and sold to benefit programs and services at the library.
While the Friends of the Highland Library holds book sales on the first Monday and third Saturday of each month, Anderson said this week’s sale includes a larger selection of books. The sale is one of two seasonal fund-raising events held each spring and fall.
Friends of the Highland Library members are invited to preview the sale from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday, Sept. 13. The sale will open to everyone on Friday, Sept. 14 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Saturday’s event will include a combined book-n-bake sale.
The sale will take place in the Friends’ store, the library community room and lower level group study room at 444 Beach Farm Circle in Highland.
Anderson said this year marks the first time that the sale has been held for three days.
Friends of the Highland Library supports the library by raising money to fund services, programs and clubs available at the library. The organization has provided seed money for the library’s collections of DVDs, audio books, video games and other resources.
