Falls Library Spring Sale

May 5 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

The Falls of Schuylkill Library’s traditional Spring Sale will take place Saturday, May 5, from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm at the Falls of Schuylkill Library, Midvale Ave. and Warden Drive.

This popular event is one of the library’s major fundraisers. Proceeds are used to purchase new materials and fund building improvements.

The sale will feature books, plants and baked goods. Light refreshments will also be available.

“The sale offers a great opportunity to do some spring shopping, support the library, and gather as a community,” said Nina Coffin, president of the Friends of the Falls of Schuylkill Library, which sponsors the event.

The Saturday sale ($10 a bag) includes books, CDs, DVDs, and books on tapes.  As always, vintage books will be separately priced. Bags will be available at the door.

The plant selection will feature varieties of annuals, perennials, hanging baskets and vegetable and herb plants.

Freshly baked cakes, pies, brownies, cookies and other treats will be available at the bake shop, coordinated by Evelyn Chrol, who said “gluten-free” options will be available this year.

Donations of baked goods may be dropped off at the sale that morning. Coffin said that volunteers are still needed to help with the event.  To volunteer or for more information about the Spring Sale, call the Library at 215-685-2093.
