This spring’s Friends of the Library Book Sale was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but working under Indiana’s reopening guidelines and local Health Department protocols, the Friends of the Library have devised a cautious plan with reduced capacity in the building and extra cleaning and will host the sale on August 5 – 7 at the Crown Point Library.
The Summer 2020 Book Sale will take place in the Crown Point Library meeting rooms:
Wednesday, August 5 from 1 – 6 p.m. p.m.:
Friends members only from 1 – 2 p.m. Please show your member card at the door. If you are not a member you can join at the sale. Beginning at 2 p.m. the sale will be open to the public.
Thursday, August 6 from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and
Friday, August 7 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. (A $1 bag sale will begin at noon).
$5.00 a bag mix and match! Choose from thousands of gently used items.
- Attendees will only be allowed to use the paper bags distributed by the Friends.
- Masks and social distancing will be required by all attendees and Friends of the Library volunteers.
Although the Friends accept book donations throughout the year, due to the pandemic, there is currently a hold on accepting donations.
We need volunteers !! If you would like to volunteer to help set-up or work at the book sale, please contact Vicky at (219) 765-1501.
Meet The Friends
To enhance and promote the use and enjoyment of the library. To raise funds to support library programs, services and to help fund items not generally covered in the library’s regular operating budget.
The Friends of the Crown Point Community Library have supported special programs and help to purchase items not generally covered in the library’s regular operating budget. They have made it their mission to enhance and promote the use and enjoyment of the library.
When you join us, you’ll:
- Sponsor programs and literacy initiatives for adults, children, and teens
- Enable lively cultural events that attract non-traditional library users
- Volunteer at Library events and book sales
- Support pro-library advocacy to government officials and the general public
Many Friends volunteer by helping with the monthly and annual book sales, fundraising, and promoting the library. In addition to membership dues, money raised from the Literary Luncheon and book sales support on-going adult, children, and teen events, provide prizes for summer reading programs and help purchase equipment not covered in the general budget.
As a member of the Friends of the Crown Point Library, you’ll be paid back in a thousand ways every year – with children’s smiles, the sincere appreciation of the library’s hardworking staff and the pure satisfaction of knowing you make a difference in your community!
