Glorious Weather, Book-Loving Community Help Make This Fall’s Book Sale Best Ever

To the Editor:

The Friends of the Princeton Public Library held their Annual Book Sale the weekend of September 27 – 29. Aided by glorious weather and a book-loving community, the sale had its best year ever. We sold thousands upon thousands of books, some dating from the early 1700’s and some published just last month. We would like to thank our wonderful volunteers, whose work throughout the year made the sale possible. Thanks also to all those who donated books to the Friends; we are so lucky to have such great offerings from this community of readers. The book sale wouldn’t be possible, of course, without the support of the library’s wonderful staff and particularly the facilities crew, who gave us their wholehearted support over many, many, hours. Others provided valuable assistance as well: Witherspoon Grill and D’Angelo’s donated meals for our set up and clean up crews, Johnson Park Elementary School Principal Bob Ginsburg and the Princeton Public Schools lent us tables for the sale, and McCaffrey’s donated the bags for the Bag Sale.

All profits from the Annual Book Sale (and from our used book store, open daily and located just inside the library entrance) go to support the library. http://princetonlibrary.org/booksale.
