Friends of the Library

If you value your library and want to volunteer in the community, then you are a natural for membership in the Friends of the Roseville Public Library. Friends help support and enhance the library through programs, gifts, advocacy and fundraising. They meet yearly in May to plan their activities.

Autumn Book Sale

The dates for the 2018 Autumn Book Sale, held in Erin Auditorium, will be:

Thursday, October 11
Friday, October 12
Saturday, October 13

The Friends have two large used book sales each year in the spring and autumn.  The revenue from the used book sales is their primary source of  income each year and they make generous donations to the Library for materials, equipment and programs.  This year the Friends paid for half of the new document/book/photo scanner, multiple copies of book discussion titles, the newsletter and programs.

The Friends need assistance setting up and breaking down the book sale area.  On Tuesday, October 9 they need help bringing boxes of books up from the basement using carts and the elevator and sorting books onto tables.  On Monday, October 15 they will need help taking unsold books back to the basement.  They also need help putting some lawn signs around the City Hall campus advertising the sale.  You don’t have to be a member to assist with the sale.  Please contact the Library if you have a couple of hours to help.   The Friends also need paper grocery bags for their used book sale.  They can be dropped off at the library anytime before the sale.  Thank you!

 

Used Book Donations

The library is pleased to accept clean and undamaged newer titles.  If we do not put them in our collection, we will give them to the Friends for their twice yearly Used Book Sales. Click here for a flyer for used book donation guidelines.
