03/03/09

The University of Scranton's Weinberg Memorial Library is seeking volunteers and accepting book and tag sale donations for its annual spring book & plant sale on Apr. 25 and 26.

"Volunteers are especially needed to help sort donated books and to help take down the book sale on the last day," said Michael Knies, associate professor and Special Collections librarian.

Those interested in volunteering may contact Barb Evans in the library at 941-4078.

The library is accepting all titles of used hardcover and paperback books, including children's books, cookbooks, fiction and non-fiction. In addition, the library is collecting videos, compact discs, audiocassettes, records and tag sale items. Donations may be placed in the boxes on the Monroe Avenue side of the Library.

This year's book sale is scheduled for Saturday, Apr. 25, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, Apr. 26, from noon to 4 p.m., in the Scranton Heritage Room on the fifth floor of the Weinberg Memorial Library.

Book prices begin at $.50 in addition to specialty priced items. Flowering plants and tag sale items will also be sold.
The Friends of the Weinberg Memorial Library and the library staff will conduct the event. Sale organizers are Phyllis Reinhardt, Ann Voorhees, and Michael Knies.

All proceeds benefit the Friends of the Weinberg Memorial Library Endowment that supports library collections and services.
A special preview sale will be held Friday, Apr. 24, for current Friends and Schemel members.
