Donations and Volunteers Needed for the Pember Book Sale

The Friends of the Pember Library and the Slate Valley Garden Club will again join together to present their annual Books, Buns, and Bouquets Sale.  The event will take place at the Mary J. Tanner School on Rte. 22 in Middle Granville, NY on Friday and Saturday, July 13 and 14, beginning at 9:00 am both days.

The Garden Club sale will feature many varieties of garden plants as well as baked goods.  This is a great opportunity to add new plants to your garden and to sample delicious home baked treats.

The book sale will offer thousands of gently used fiction, non-fiction, and children’s books as well as AV materials, records, tapes, CD’s, and books on tape.  Prices are $.25 for paperback books and $1.00 for hardcovers.  Patrons can fill an entire bag we provide for only $1.00 on Saturday from 1 pm to 3 pm.

All of our books are stored at the Pember Library on West Main Street in Granville and we must transport them to the sale.  We need the help and support of many volunteers to accomplish this task.  If you are able to help, even for a short time, please join us at the Pember on Tuesday, July 10 at 9:00 am. We are in need of strong backs and large vehicles. If you are not able to move the boxes of books, we also need volunteers to unpack the boxes and help with the set up at the Mary J. Tanner School. We will be there on Tuesday, July 10 at 9:00 and also on Wednesday and Thursday mornings.  Any assistance you can give will be greatly appreciated.

Book donations are accepted anytime the library is open.  This is the perfect time to clean out your bookshelves to make room for all the books you purchase at the sale.  Please no encyclopedias, textbooks, or books that are destined for the dump.  If you have large amounts of books to donate, it would be best to call ahead so that we can have someone on hand to help unload your vehicle.  For information, call 518 642-2525.
