The Friends of the Weinberg Memorial Library at The University of Scranton are sponsoring a book sale on Saturday, April 27, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, April 28, from noon until 4 p.m. A preview sale will also be held Friday night for students and Friends of the Library members. The sale includes used non-fiction and fiction hardcover and paperback books, plants and tag sale items. The sale takes place in the Heritage Room on the fifth floor of the Weinberg Memorial Library, with all proceeds benefiting the Friends of the Weinberg Memorial Library Endowment.
We are currently accepting donations of clean, properly stored books, which may be dropped off on the first floor of the library. We are not accepting encyclopedias and magazines.
If you are a student and would like to earn service hours, consider volunteering at the book sale. We will need help pricing, organizing and selling the books. For more information or to sign up, contact Ellen Judge at Ellen.Judge@scranton.edu or stop by the Center for Service & Social Justice, DeNaples Center, room 205B.
The library is also seeking applications for student and University community arts and crafts vendors for its 2013 annual book sale. Applications are due by Friday, April 12, and vendors will be notified of acceptance on or before Friday, April 18. Approval of applications is space permitting, and the library reserves the right to reject any applicant. The table space fee is $5 per day and is due via cash before table set-up each day. If a vendor would like table space for all three days, a discounted fee of $10 is available. The library is not responsible for the loss or damage to art/crafts. The vendors are required to properly staff their tables and are responsible for the sale and security of their merchandise. For more information or to fill out an application, visit the library’s circulation desk or contact Barb Evans, access services, at (570) 941-4078 or Barbara.Evans@scranton.edu.
