Annual Book Sale at Kent Memorial Library
- eSunday, Aug 20
- jKent Memorial Library
The Kent Memorial Library Annual Book Sale is held on Fridays from 12:00 to 5:00 PM, Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Sundays from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM (weather permitting). The Book Sale will continue on weekends all summer and through mid-October.
“It is the Library’s biggest fundraiser, and all proceeds benefit the Kent Memorial Library’s operating budget.” says Library Director, Donna Miller.
The sale carries a wide range of books, including many current best sellers, mysteries, biographies, art history, to name a few; the book sale caters to all interests. Books are sorted by category, with prices starting as low as 50 cents. And because of its popularity, we continue to offer a collection of jigsaw puzzles. We are accepting donations of books in good condition (no magazines, encyclopedias, Reader Digest books, old textbooks).
While you’re at the sale, why not buy a raffle ticket for a pristine 1998 Porsche Boxster? The raffle is another way the library raises funds. The crimson red convertible has very low mileage, a five speed manual transmission and a six cylinder boxer design engine as well as several factory upgrades. For more information, go to kentmemoriallibrary.org.
Book donations and plastic bags are always needed as well as volunteers for the book sale. If you would like to volunteer for the book sale, please contact the Library. For more information about either, please call the Library or speak to a staff member.
The Annual Book Sale is a vital part of the Library’s income, accounting for a significant amount of the Library’s operating budget. The Kent Memorial Library’s mission is to enrich the lives of individuals and the community by providing materials, programs, and services to encourage reading, learning and imagination.
