Nonprofit to host Lewiston Library book sale on December 4


The Friends of Lewiston Public Library are planning to hold a book sale from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, December 4.

The sale will take place at Callahan Hall at 200 Lisbon St. Library, at the corner of Pine Street in Lewiston. The event will be preceded by the annual Friends meeting at 10 a.m.

There will be a large selection of fiction and non-fiction articles for all ages, including audiobooks, music CDs and DVDs.

Payment must be made in cash or by check. Pricing is a fill method as follows:

• $ 5 to fill a plastic bag provided by Shaw’s;

• $ 8 to fill your own reusable, standard-size shopping bag; and

• $ 10 to buy and fill a larger bag with the LPL logo.

All proceeds from sales and donations are used to fund library programs, special events and purchases not covered by the annual budget.

The Friends of LPL is a non-profit organization that helps the library develop its facilities, services and resources. For many years, the Friends have supported library programming (for example, helping to launch what is now known as LA Arts). More recently, Friends’ contributions have been even more tangible. In 1995, the Friends succeeded in lobbying Lewiston City Council to expand the library. A year later, the Friends launched a fundraising campaign that resulted in donations of $ 600,000 from over 400 individuals, businesses and foundations, enough to complete the final library expansion and to secure the furniture and l equipment required for state-of-the-art installation.
