Refill your shelves

Re-book without going bankrupt at our Friends’ book sale this month.

The Friends of Mentor Public Library will hold a special book sale this month at the Read House property, next door to our Main Branch.

The sale begins from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 25, with a special preview night for members of the Friends of Mentor Public Library. (Click here for more info on how to join our Friends.)

Then, the Friends will host a $5 bag sale that’s open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 27. That means you can buy as many books as they can fit in a bag—picture books, chapter books, fiction, nonfiction, whatever they want—for just five dollars.

Finally, the sale will conclude with a $2 bag sale from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 28.

The money from these book sales supports library programs and services, including summer reading, author visits, children’s story times and programs, as well as programming for teens.

The Read House is next door to our Main Branch—8215 Mentor Ave. in Mentor—and parking is behind the Main Branch.
