Library Sale Offers Books for Pocket Change
The Friends of the Morse Institute Library is searching for volunteers for the upcoming library book sale.
No matter if you're young or old, a good book can transport you to other times and other worlds. The Morse Institute Library will open the portal May 19 and 20 at their annual book sale. And the best part of it all might be that you can grab a few new reads for your collection with just the change you find in your car cup holder.
Most hardcover books on sale cost just $1 each; children's books along with young adult novels and paperbacks go for 50 cents. Specially-priced collectibles will also be available for purchase. All money made will go directly to supporting the Friends of the Morse Institute Library, which helps support library programs such as the Bookmobile, Natick Reads, programs for children and adults, new library cards, museum passes, stained glass window restoration and more.
The library is actively seeking volunteers to help set up, take down and work the book sale. Setup runs from 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 17 and break-down runs from 3 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 20. If you're interested in volunteering, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The town has been holding annual book sales since 1991. The books put up for sale are largely from donations, with some coming out of the library collection, according to Barbara Laderman, a member of the Morse Institute Library Steering Committee.
The book sale is from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 19 and from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 20.
