Hundreds of fiction, nonfiction, self-help, children’s and other books will be available when the Friends of the Richmond Hill Library hold their annual book and yard sale from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. April 2 at the library on Ford Avenue.
The Friends have been collecting books for many months for this sale. Paperbacks will sell for 50 cents, and hardback books will be $1. All books will be inside the library in the meeting rooms.
A yard sale will be set up outside featuring many “valuable items” to browse through.
The Friends of the Richmond Hill Library is a nonprofit organization interested in good library services. They work to increase the programs and services of the library and enrich the cultural opportunities available to the citizens of Bryan County.
Activities of the organization include sponsoring special projects, informing the public of resources and services available through the library, securing materials that are beyond the library’s budget and performing other services deemed helpful to the library and the library staff.
The annual book/yard sale is the main fundraiser for the organization, and the Friends use the funds year round to supplement the budget of the library.
Membership to the Friends of the Library is open to anyone interested in supporting the Richmond Hill Library. Meetings are held the second Monday of each month, except June, July and August, at the library at 10 a.m. Dues are $10 for an individual membership and $20 for a family/business membership.
The Friends still are accepting donations of books and yard-sale items. The Friends ask that clothes not be donated. After March 21, a trailer will be available on the library grounds to store the items that are donated.
