The Friends of Albany Library had an amazing booksale last weekend, raising $7,691.57 for the programs that make this library so fun! Vintage and Collectibles were high scorers, as always. The large Community Center Hall held well-organized rows of choice picks, with 50-cent items on the tables outside.
Hidden treasures donated to the library continue to sell very well online, with some titles topping the $100 mark. (Pssst: the Friends of the Library love “signed copies.”)
Marsha Skinner and her band of merry men (high school & college students) carted tables and books from basement to the sales floor, powered by delicious donuts. Volunteer groups came and gathered donations for many great organizations–including schools, inmates and the military.
Superb weather both days made for great shopping! See happy customers and booksellers below.
