Do you know the recipe for making money for the library?
Have a successful
Book Warehouse Sale.
Add thousands of books, include some full parking lots, a bunch of dedicated volunteers, and more happy customers than you can shake a stick at. Simmer for three days and you have money for the Jacksonville Public Library.
The FJPL’S Book Warehouse Sales have become real family events. Children really enjoy shopping with their parents. And teachers look forward to the sales.
FJPL Book Sale Chair David Wells said: “We had record crowds for our Cool Off With Hot Summer Days Book Sale. Especially popular was the Sunday “BAG SALE” where customers filled a grocery bag for just $10 a bag – plus we had a special of buy 2 bags and get a third bag for FREE.” What a great deal that was.
Wells said customers should be on the lookout for the next sale — “Christmas in October”. And he reminded everyone that all proceeds raised by FJPL go to the Jacksonville Public Library.
After the Book Warehouse Sale, FJPL’s hard-working volunteers went right back to work, reorganizing to reopen the FJPL Bookstore (which is a year-round operation) and sorting books for the next big Book Warehouse Sale.
