On Saturday, November 12, 2011, the Bookstore had $971.88 in sales.  Why the big day?  We had a 2nd Saturday Sale in the lobby, the focus being on unique, collectible and nostalgic books.  Special thanks go out to Pat Stephenson for organizing and running the sale. Thanks also go to Carol Smyrk, Dana Gilbertson, and Ruth Mangan who helped set-up and worked during the sale.  And the sales couldn’t run smoothly without excellent cashiers at the register, so thanks to Mary Anderson and Phyllis Hodgson.  The Bookstore is richer (pun intended) for the time you have spent volunteering!

It is never too early to shop for Christmas, especially if it is books.

Here are a few examples of sets, children’s books, and fiction that will be available. We will highlight a few on similar posts this week. Call ahead if you see something you really want! REMEMBER Friends get a discount off their purchases. There has never been a better time to become a Friend of the Rochester Publich Library!

September Second Saturday Sale

The theme for the Second Saturday Sale was Read to Grow, held on Sept 10th. We focussed on children’s books (for all ages!) in both fiction and nonfiction, plus an audiobook selection. We had a GREAT turnout, making over $400 for the Library (which is alot of books when you think the average price was 50cents a book!!) You can see tha everyone enjoyed themselves, especially with milk and cookies!
We also had a plant sale to encourage readers to go/grow green, especially with the encroaching autumnal and winter seasons! We made $174 which was also donated to the Library.
Paige had a great time with both plants and books! Join her next time, either buying books or volunteering. The Friends and the Library could use your help!
