The Friends sponsor two major book sales per year. Additionally, the Friends have a year-round book sale in the library that currently includes magazines, cookbooks, paperbacks, hardbacks and some children's books. To round out book-buying opportunities, the Friends list approximately 400 titles of unusual, rare, and special books on the internet at http://www.amazon.com/shops/ptwnfriends.
These annual book sales are supported by the generosity of the library patrons through their donations. Donations are accepted year-round at the library’s book return desk.
Friends are always looking for volunteers to sort, setup, and run the book sales. The Friends also need help sorting and restocking magazines and paperbacks year-round.
Members of the Friends volunteer teams shelve children's picture books, videos, and CDs; mend books; process and shelve magazines; and serve as docents for our genealogy collection.
The Friends 2014 Spring Book Sale generated $16,800 to be used to purchase items for the library.
