STRATFORD, Conn. -- The Stratford Library is currently requesting donations for its annual June book sale.
Contributors are urged to recycle their good books to share with others and help the Stratford Library increase its book purchase fund at the same time.
The book sale/fundraiser is being organized this year by the SLA Board of Trustees under co-chairmen Shelley Hall and Karla Glad of Stratford. It is scheduled for June 2-5 and will be held in conjunction again this year with Stratford’s Main Street Festival.
Donations of good hardcover books and paperbacks, fiction or nonfiction as well as sound and video recordings and sheet music, can be brought to the library. A special book collection bin is on site in the main lobby.
The book sale workers encourage residents to donate their biographies, cookbooks, poetry, plays, travel, mystery, science fiction, children’s books, etc.
Premium-condition books and children’s materials are especially appreciated this year. No magazines, Readers Digest condensed books or textbooks of any kind can be accepted.
Patrons requiring help to unload cars must call 203.385-4166 prior to their delivery in order for the library to arrange assistance.
Donations will be accepted through Saturday, May 21. Current library hours are Monday – Thursday: 10 - 8; Friday – Saturday: 10 - 5 and Sunday: 1-5.
The book donation bin is located in the library’s main lobby adjacent to the Main Street entrance.
