On Friday, August 8, the Galion Public Library hosted a “donation only” cookbook sale.
Run by the Friends of the Library, the sale was a hit! In just the first hour, customers were walking out with boxes of books. All donations made from this sale were then given back to the library to help fund special programs and events.
The Friends are extremely helpful for the library, and anyone can join. More specialized prices can be found online, but for a regular member it costs $5 a year. The benefits involve being able to attend an event-sale early to have first pick on the items there. This was especially helpful for those who attended the cookbook sale! Lines were outside waiting for the doors to open.
Fortunately, for those who were not able to attend the cookbook sale, the same generous donor also donated sewing/craft books that will be a part of another “donation only” sale on Sept. 24. All cookbooks that were left over from Friday’s sale will be available during that sale as well. Remember, if you become a Friend you can catch these books before they are all gone!
