New stuff

It was a great day for donations - we received 6 boxes of great childrens book. We also had cart loads of withdrawn books wheeled into our room today. Lots of Childrens but also Westerns, Mystery and masses of Test Prep books (they usually start the sale under the Textbook area). Because we like to and we think they sell better - the childrens books get a nice wipe down before they make their way to the boxes. Only 31 days to our event.

I'm Barbara and have been having booksales at the library - 4 moves, for more than 30 years. I thought I would write about what goes on behind the scenes of a Friends Book Sale.
New signs have been ordered, our bookmarks made and tons of books have already been stored for our next big bookale. We start at 10:00am April 30th and end May 9th at 6pm.
Since we keep track of how many books of our different categories, we already know that we will have more childrens books than last time. Donations are always welcome and can be brought to the main Library, 2850 NE Brookwood Parkway, Hillsboro, OR. Volunteers are also always welcomed. Our big set-up on April 25th will be done with the Help of HandsonPortland.org. Check the Washington County calender. This is one great booksale and I hope to see you there.
