"That's what the Friends of Cooper Memorial Library realized as over 800 book lovers of all ages shopped for books, CDs, albums, VHS tapes and puzzles during the Semi-Annual sale," Jackson reported.
The event generated over $6,700 which will be used to fund projects such as reading programs for children and teens, Veteran's History Project, Festival of Reading, Adopt-A-Magazine Program and other resources needed to insure that the library keeps abreast of current technology.
The books are donated throughout the year by individuals, clubs, schools and other organizations and are in good shape, in some cases new. Donations are always welcomed and can be dropped off at the circulation desk. The next book sale will be held in February, 2015. Information on dates and times will be announced.
The Friends are sponsoring a trip to Tarpon Springs, FL on Thursday, September 18, where guests will have an opportunity to take a narrated, two-hour Sun Line eco cruise, stop at the Spongerama Museum to learn of the town's history, collect shells at a local beach and explore the many Greek shops and restaurants.
