Until further notice all donations will go to the new Crozet Library Building Fund. If you would prefer a donation to the Friends, or to specify any other purpose, there is a place to do so when filling out the form.
The principal purpose of the Friends of the Library is to raise added funds for the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library so that:
Proceeds from our Spring and Fall Book Sales benefit the Library’s programs and special projects. Most of the books are donated by members of our communities.
NEW POLICY: No scanners or other electronic devices will be permitted during the first three hours of the first day of the book sale.
Proceeds for the 2012 Fall Sale were $106,500 to help support the library. This was $11,000 more than was raised in 2011. Many THANKS to everyone who contributed materials, volunteered their time and energy, and bought books and recordings at the sale. Over 60 members took advantage of the more relaxed atmosphere of the pre-sale.
All members up to date on their membership dues can purchase up to $50 worth of materials before the first day of the sale. To become a member, see: http://jmrlfriends.org/join. Items from the Valuable and Attractive list will not be available at this time. Scanners and other electronic devices will not be permitted at this special event.
You can participate in 2013 by volunteering
Fabulous books, recordings, games and puzzles, and ephemera of all types will be available. As in past years, the public is invited to Jump Start Your Holiday Shopping, with a wide selection of Great Books at Great Prices for a Great Cause.
There is no Educator’s Day as part of the fall book sale.
Proceeds benefit programs and services of the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library.
Over $98,000 was raised from the Spring Book Sale and there is an expectation of more revenue to come from the company, Giggil, which removed all unsold materials and will attempt to sell them online.
Many thanks to everyone who has helped make this 2013 sale a successful venture. This includes not only the corps of volunteers who help throughout the year and the larger pool who help at the sale. Gratitude is also extended to the many people who donate such fabulous material in such great quantities and to all of our customers whose purchases help support the programs and projects of the library system.
