Friends of Libraries seeks donated books, DVDs for spring sale
Do you have DVDs, books, CDs or videos you don’t use anymore or simply want to pass along to a new home?
If so, donate those still useful items to the Friends of Mesa County Libraries for its upcoming Spring Book Sale to raise money for programs and materials that support Mesa County Libraries.
Friends of Mesa County Libraries accepts all genres of books — except encyclopedias or magazines — particularly historical books, biographies, cookbooks, travel and gardening books, and current fiction.
Although the spring book sale isn’t until next month, the Friends of Mesa County Libraries wants people to begin thinking about donations now.
People can drop off items from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15, and again Feb. 22 in the parking lots of the Fruita City Market, the Orchard Mesa Branch Library, 230 Lynwood St., or Clifton Branch Library, 590 32 Road, Unit 6-F.
Donations also can be made any time to the Friends Book Repository on the southwest corner of the First Congregational Church, 1425 S. Fifth St., parking lot across from Grand Junction High School.
The church is the site of the Spring Book Sale from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 20, and Friday, March 21, as well as from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 22.
There’s a special Members-Only Sale from 3 to 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 19, giving Friends of Mesa County Libraries access to all sale items in advance.
Memberships can be purchased for $10 at the door March 19.
