Northeast Ohio book-lovers can once again shop recycled at one of the area’s most popular Friends of the Library book sales, June 29–30, at the Read House, the new home of the Friends of the Mentor Public Library.
Sale hours are:
- Friday, June 29, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
- Saturday, June 30, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
On Thursday, June 28, from 4–7 p.m., Friends of the Library members are invited to preview the sale and enjoy refreshments.
Memberships may be available for purchase at the Preview. The Friends email address for further information is
firstname.lastname@example.org. (To speed the application process, shoppers who plan to purchase a membership at the Preview should prepare a membership application and a check or cash for dues ahead of time. A downloadable membership form and dues information are available from the Friends of the Library web page.)
Proceeds from the sales help support library programs and facilities, and every purchase from a Friends of the Library book sale is an exercise in reducing, reusing, and recycling.
Long known for their large, well organized book sales, the Mentor Friends have been busy behind the scenes as they moved into their new quarters in the Read House, freeing for library use the space they had used for book storage and sales on the library’s lower level. That work now completed, they are ready to welcome back their members and book-buying fans at this first sale in their new home.
The Read House is located next door to the Main Library (map). Parking is available behind the Main Library at 8215 Mentor Avenue (map) and in the library’s auxiliary lot at the corner of Mentor Avenue and Sharonlee Drive (map).
