Friends Host Children’s Book Sidewalk Sale
Children’s Books for $.10 on Saturday, August 21st from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
The Friends of Rockford Public Library will host a Children’s Book Sidewalk Sale on Saturday, August 21st from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in front of the Main Library at 215 N. Wyman St. This is the first book sale hosted by the group dedicated solely to children’s books and materials. Thousands of titles will be available for just $.10 each.
“We have been fortunate to receive several large donations of children’s books and we thought it would be fun to host a sidewalk sale before school starts,” said Jan Cooper, Book Shop Manager for the Friends of RPL. “We know how important it is for children to develop a love of reading and having their own books is a great start. We would love for all these books to find new homes.”
All proceeds from the sale benefit the Friends of Rockford Public Library. The group grants thousands of dollars annually to the library to support programs and services.
