Book Sale

 

Action at 110 West Main St., Adamstown, new library site, generated a lot of support from the festive attendees at Foxchase where the annual Bucks for Books dinner/auction was held.  Through the live auction, raffles, mystery wine sales, 50/50, etc., $25,632 was raised and will be used by the library for children’s book and program purchases.  The community at large contributed to our success with their donations, corporate sponsorships, ads, etc.  We are fortunate to have such a caring and understanding community….our Circle of Friends.

 

With a hearty THANK YOU from the Friends’ Board,

Another way you can help us….we always run out of the brown Weaver’s shopping bags (used at Saturday’s 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’re also 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.    We’re trying to help you find your favorite books at a great price!

 

 

JOIN US IN 2020 FOR A FUN

MISSISSIPPI CRUISE!!

We’re cruising Down the River…the Mississippi River, that is.  Join us on this fundraiser for the library Capital Campaign.

We’re sailing on June 20, 2020 (2019 already booked) with American Cruise Lines starting in New Orleans and heading north to Memphis, Tennessee.  (9 days, 8 nights)  Lots of excursions in between and things to do.

Travel arrangements (shuttles, flights, pre-cruise hotel, etc.,) are all being handled thru the Reading AAA.  You may contact Beth Chapin at 484-878-2057 at AAA Travel, Wyomissing, to book your cruise.  Be sure to let her know you are with the Friends group.

Flyers will also be available at the library or you can also contact Judy Nichol (484-1447) , Marj Hyrb (484-4047) or Margaret Harting (336-7145).  The ship is small, the tours are advertised nationally, so reservations are needed ASAP.

Come Aboard!!

 

 

AMAZON SALES

 

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.

 

 

 

HELP WANTED  !! 

Can you lift up to 40 pounds??  Can you spare an hour a week or whatever your schedule allows?  We really need help in moving bags and boxes of donated books to our bottom level book sorting area.  If you can help us, please give your name and contact information to the library staff.  Thank you so much.

 

Check out the library website to see the fundraising activities of the Trustees.

 

Everyone loves the Adamstown Area Library.
Help keep it strong and vital!

 Margaret

We look forward to seeing you around the library.

Sincerely,

Margaret Harting,
President,
Friends of the Adamstown Area Library

Libraries are free….except they really aren’t.  Please help us continue to fund the library and the many services it provides to the community.

Thanks!

The Friends’ donations of $100,000 for the capital campaign and $25,000 for the Tranquility Garden for the new library are in keeping with their goals to support the library and to make a worthwhile learning facility even better. That’s what Friends are for!
