It’s time to clean out those piles of books and donate them to the Friends of the Library. The Friends of Westchester Public Library announce they will hold their Spring Friends of the Library Book Sale at Thomas Library, 200 W. Indiana Avenue, Chesterton, from Friday, April 15 to Sunday, April 17. The sale will begin on Friday, April 15, with the Friends Only Preview Sale from 4 to 8 p.m. Only current members of the Friends will be admitted, but memberships to the Friends will be sold at the door for $5.

The Public Sale will be held Saturday, April 16, and Sunday, April 17, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Sunday, all items will be sold for $3 a bag. Prices for newer and special books will be individually marked. A large selection of hardcover books will be sold for $1.00 each and paperback books for $.50 each.

Patrons donating materials for the sale are encouraged to bring their donations to the collection box in the lobby of the Thomas Library. The library cannot use damaged books or books without covers, smelly or water mildewed books, textbooks, or encyclopedia and reference sets more than 10 years old.

The Friends are also looking for volunteers to help sort materials for the sale on Saturday, April 9, at 9 a.m., and for volunteers to help staff the sale.

Proceeds from the sales are donated to the library and help fund many supplemental and special programming efforts such as film series, children’s programs, book discussions, and staff recognition events.
