It’s That Time of Year Again…

Fall Used Book & Media Sale

 

Monday, October 13 – Saturday, October 18

 

A wide selection of used books will be available for purchase at prices a fraction of the original cost. Saturday is “Buck a Bag Day;” pay one dollar for as many books as you can fit in one plastic bag. Puzzles, which have always been a big seller in the past, are abundant this year. Why not expand your home library and help your local library out at the same time?

 

The Friends of McCord Memorial Library appreciate the support of the many people who donate items to their bi-annual sales. Donations of “gently used” books (especially Children’s books), puzzles and mixed media items can be placed in the bin located inside the Park Street entrance before October 10. Please, no textbooks, Reader’s Digest condensed books or encyclopedias.

Members of the community are invited to join this volunteer organization. The Friends meet at the library on the first Wednesday of each month at 11:00 am. Membership is open to all adults and there are no dues.

   Teen Read Week

 

October 13—18, 2014

Turn your dreams into reality

 

This year’s theme for National Teen Read Week invites every teen to join us at McCord Library and explore their dreams. We encourage teens to be regular readers and library users. Research shows that teens who read for pleasure test better at school and are more likely to succeed in the workforce. And it’s fun and it’s free!

So come in and read something while earning a prize.
