Spring Book Sale set for today

EAST DUNDEE – The Friends of the Library Spring Book Sale at the Dundee Library will be open from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. today and will continue from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The sale will be in the meeting room on the lower level of the library, 555 Barrington Ave. (Route 68) in East Dundee.

This sale features thousands of all newly donated materials. Hardbacks are $1; paperbacks are 50 cents; five romance paperbacks are $1; DVDs and audio books are $2; CDs and computer games are $1; VHS and cassette tapes are 25 cents; and children’s books are 25 cents. Also, shoppers who bring a nonperishable item for the F.I.S.H. Food Pantry will receive two free books of their choice. A last-hour special – all one can fit in a grocery bag for $2 – will be from 3 to 4 p.m. Saturday.

The Friends of the Dundee Library is a group of volunteers who enjoy helping the library through various fundraising activities. Proceeds from events such as their biannual book sale have resulted in enhancements to the library such as the Peek-A-Book system in the children’s department; titles added to the audiobook, Spanish and large-print collections; and a popcorn machine that is used during movie events.

The Friends meet every third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. at the library. All are welcome to attend and join.
