The Friends of the Wayne County Public Library invite the public to attend the organization's annual Spring Book Sale April 11-13 in the Gertrude Weil Auditorium at the Main Library at 1001 East Ash Street.

Sale hours Saturday are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

There will be a special preview on Friday, April 11, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., for members of the Friends of the Library only. Friends memberships will be sold at the door that evening ($10 for individuals and $15 for family memberships) and are available for purchase at the library at other times.

Thousands of good books are available for sale at very reasonable prices. Attractive tote bags are also for sale -- a good way to bring book purchases home.

It's not too late to donate books for the sale. When donating, please note that the Friends do not accept encyclopedias, Reader's Digest condensed books, National Geographic magazines, text books or damaged books.

Proceeds from the sale are used by the Friends to enhance Wayne County libraries through ongoing programs and initiatives including: Wayne County Reads, The Community Garden, Dial-A-Teacher Program, Visits by noted authors, digital microfilm machine for Local History Room, book display cases, magazine subscriptions, children's programs, adult programs and computer work stations

The Friends of Wayne County Public Library is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to enriching the programs and services at the libraries.
