Baldwin Library pop-up used books, media sale
The Friends of the Baldwin Public Library will hold a pop-up sale of used books and media on Saturday, June 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, June 13, from noon to 3 p.m.
The sale of selected children’s books, adult fiction and non-fiction, DVDs and music CDs will take place on the plaza in front of the library. All proceeds benefit the library’s programs and services.
The Friends of the Baldwin Public Library held a small pop-up sale last October. The upcoming event will be larger than that sale, but smaller than the group’s traditional semi-annual sales. Members of the public are invited to browse a large selection of lightly-used hardcover and paperback books for children and adults, DVDs, and music CDs.
Friends President Ryndee Carney said COVID-19 restrictions in 2020 negatively impacted the group’s fundraising efforts. “I don’t know who has missed our book sale more – the Friends of the BPL or our loyal members and customers,” Carney said.
Established in 1950, Friends of the Baldwin Public Library is a non-profit association that supports and enhances the library’s goals. The group of volunteers raises thousands of dollars each year to supplement tax-payer funding the library receives.
