WAKE FOREST — Love a good book? Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 2: The Friends of the Wake Forest Library will have hundreds of good books of every genre for sale at the Ledford Center, 120 S. Wingate St., on the campus of the Southeast Baptist Theological Seminary.
The annual used book sale runs from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., but Friends members can begin shopping at 8 a.m. Memberships may be purchased at the sale. Cash or checks only will be accepted for all memberships and purchases.
“The book sale has always been the Friends’ main fundraiser,” said group President Kathleen Ross. “With the community’s support, the Friends have [funded] items from electronics to furniture” for the Wake Forest library.
This year’s sale coincides with the annual Meet in the Street event in downtown Wake Forest.
Now through April 20, the group will gladly accept donations of recently published, gently used hardcover and paperback books, CDs and DVDs at any of 15 sites (see tiny.cc/wffriends15 for locations). Textbooks and magazines will not be accepted.
In addition, volunteers are always welcome to help gather and sort the donations.
The Friends of the Wake Forest Library is an all-volunteer, nonprofit group of local residents who believe in, support and champion the community library in Wake Forest.
The group raises funds to enhance and promote the library facility and programs, encourages gifts and contributions to the library and advocates for the library.
