The Friends of the Richmond Hill Library and the Common Threads Sewing Group will hold a combined book and craft sale on Saturday, November 11, from 10-2 in the library located on Ford Avenue. All types of gently used books will be for sale at bargain prices. Although many are priced lower, most hard backs are $1, and most paperbacks are 50¢. As the last regularly scheduled sale was cancelled due to the hurricane, this sale will be even larger than usual. And, for the first time, FOL will be accepting credit cards as payment.
This sale features holiday themed items, including many in pristine condition so that they would be great gifts for everyone on your list. FOL has been stockpiling these books all year for this special grouping.
The sale includes some local special interest books, and a number of books about the southeast. Also available are some Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, and Harry Potter books, a special collection of older Archie comics bundled for low prices, books about native Americans, a vast collection of romance novels, and a collection of books about the ancient worlds. For teachers, there are many instructional materials for sale and lots of children’s DVDs. Many craft and decorating books have been donated recently. And there are some vintage books that would interest collectors.
As always, FOL appreciates donations of gently used books. These can be brought to the library during operating hours. Tax deduction forms are available upon request as FOL is a 501(c)(3) public charity.
Common Threads has a variety of knitted, crocheted, and quilted items for sale. Some are holiday themed and some are sports team related. There will be a silent auction for some lovely handmade quilts. This is the opportunity for you to pick up some special gifts for the holiday season or something for yourself. Common Threads supports a number of community groups, including the Wounded Warriors, local hospitals, and local nursing homes. It routinely donates hats to cancer patients throughout the area.
