2022 Valentine Book Sale
Roses are red. Violets are blue.
Valentine’s Day book sale is starting in a week or two.
We’ve planned ahead and thought of you.
We’ll help you shop an easy way
to surprise your special someone on Valentine’s Day.
It’s our annual Valentine bags filled with books.
Stop by the library and give a look.
Shopping starts at the new library on Monday, January 25, until sold out.
Bags are $5 each. Exact change appreciated.
BASKET BINGO 2021
The Reamstown Fire Company has designated lockdown to remain until at least the end of April, then to be further decided. That eliminates our scheduled basket bingo for March 21. However, the 2021 baskets have arrived (and are looking good) so there will be a bingo sometime down the road (but possibly not until March 20, 2022). Of course, we were wishing it would not turn out this way. We’ll keep you posted because we don’t want you to miss this fun event. Thank you for your patience.
ANNUAL USED BOOK SALE DONATIONS UPDATE
In anticipation of a book sale sometime in the spring, we are accepting book, puzzle, CD, and DVD donations at the OLD library on the following dates in 2022:
Tuesday, January 11 from 9 am – 11 am
Tuesday, February 8 from 9 am – 11 am
Tuesday, March 8 from 9 am – 11 am
Thank you for all of your kind and helpful donations.
Hope you are all enjoying your winter reading books!
2021 “BUCKS FOR BOOKS” DINNER & AUCTION
Experiencing keen disappointment, the Friends’ Board arrived at the decision to postpone until November 2022 one of our favorite fundraisers, the Bucks for Books Dinner/Auction. For years, we yearned for a new library. Now we have a beautiful new exciting building and funds are needed more than ever, and the library always looks to the Friends for help. With all the considerations needed to host an event like this, it just wasn’t feasible to make it happen.
If you are able, contributions to the Friends would be greatly appreciated and would help compensate for the loss of that event’s earnings. If you would like to make a donation, please make your check payable to Friends of the Adamstown Area Library, and mail it to:
Joy Maier, Treasurer
7 Arabian Court
Reinholds, PA 17517
In the meantime, if you have items you were holding for the auction, please continue to keep them and we will use them when we have another fun (and hopefully virus free) evening on Saturday, November 12, 2022.
Thank you for understanding,
The Friends’ Board of Adamstown Area Library
Another way you can help us….we always run out of the brown Weaver’s shopping bags for our book sale, so during the year could you please save your bags and bring them to the library when you get a pile? If you want to be really helpful, double bag them for us.
Also, the Amazon team uses bubble wrap and (new) mailing envelopes to send our books. We would appreciate donations of those items also to help us cut costs.
Want More Choices???
We have resumed offering books on Amazon, so check us out there for some unusual finds. Also offering another choice, we maintain a large bookcase of books for sale at the Mad Hatter Antiques. And, if you are a frequent patron at the library, you will know that there is also a bookcase of books available for sale as well as some free books. We’re trying to help you find your favorite books at a great price!
Do you know that The Friends are selling high quality books on Amazon.com????
Visit www.amazon.com. In the search box, type Friends of Adamstown Library. You will then see a listing of our available books. Click on a book, then look for our name under Seller on the right side of the page. All proceeds from the Amazon sales will benefit the building fund for our new library. Happy Shopping!
Our Amazon team is busily working away and it is highly successful with our online sales. In fact, some additional help would be most welcome. A few minutes of training is all that is needed if you enjoy doing some computer time. If interested, leave your information with the staff at the library checkout desk.
