Book sale supports library

The Friends of Library will be supporting Okanagan libraries by hosting a book sale this weekend

The Kelowna Friends of Library are hoping to raise $3,000 to go towards Okanagan libraries.

A book sale will be held April 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 30 from 9 to 12 at the Capital News Centre.

The funds will go towards programs and resources for the libraries.

President of the Friends of Library, Pamela Leco said libraries are a community place, where people of all ages and ethnicities gather.

“Libraries are not just places to read,” she said.

There will be no item costing more than $2. The sale tables will be loaded with books from over 200 boxes, comprising ORL library withdrawals and public donations.

Funds support the year-round baby, children and teen programming, the Summer Reading Club, guest speakers and author events, special new facilities and more.

In 2016, Friends funded almost $7,000 towards the three branches wishlists. This May FOL will contribute about $11,000 to wishlists; of this, $6000 will go towards performers, prizes, and crafts for the upcoming Summer Reading Club, Walk on the Wild side!.

From all 2016 book sales, Friends contributed another $11,000 towards special projects and programming across the ORL system.

Every book purchased and every sale success means the better Friends can meet those library needs.
