Friends’ Book Sale a sellout!

Satisfied book sale customer.

this update provided by Friends’ administrator Elizabeth Nevers

There was not a book to be seen by 1:15 pm on Saturday, November 10th, the last day of the Friends of the Libraries’ book sale.

An estimated 3,000 buyers purchased around 15,000 used books, CDs, DVDs and maps during the four-day event.  LP records also sold briskly.  New customers, as well regulars, scoured through the well organized tables. In fact, a new sales record was set!

Many thanks to Jim Dast and his able volunteers for picking up, sorting and setting up the donated materials.  Also thanks to Beth Kubly and her crew of friendly volunteers who staffed the sale. The funds from the book sales help to support library grants and special public events.

Shoppers peruse the goods.

Our next sale is scheduled from April 3rd through April 6th.  To donate materials, please email friends@library.wisc.edu or call our office at 608.265-2505.
