Once again, the Friends of the Invermere Library are looking for donations of books to sell at the Big Book Sale on Saturday, July 13th at the Invermere Community Hall. This is your chance to go through your collection of books and donate them to this fundraiser for our library. We are looking for your fiction, nonfiction, travel, cookbooks, children’s books, biography, history, science, home improvement, self-help and all books in good condition.
This is a wonderful way to recycle something you enjoyed and know someone else will treasure a book you have read. The library benefits because the money raised by the Big Book Sale is used to buy more new library books that you — the reader — can borrow. The money also goes toward library programs that are offered to children and adults alike.
Friends of the Library sort through thousands of books from the public and divide them into genres you will be free to peruse on July 13th. Please bring your books to the library when it is open and leave them in the front hall. They can also be dropped off at Bishop’s Café in Fairmont (Unit #5, Resort Road, 250-688-0684). Please do not bring textbooks, National Geographic, Reader’s Digest Condensed Books or computer manuals.
The library is open Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays, and is closed Sundays and Mondays.
