Faced with SCARY-big piles of surplus books donated from many sources, the Friends of the Cypress Park Library will once again host a cupboard-emptying book sale, this time on the weekend before Halloween, Saturday, October 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
As part of this next regular book sale, the Friends group will again empty out storage spaces of withdrawn and donated books to raise funds for library kids and youth programs.  Thousands of used, near-new, and occasionally rare and out-of-print books for all interests will be made available.  (And there usually ARE some “scary” ones, too.)

In addition, the sale offers some books-on tape, movies (DVD and VHS), and audio tapes and CDs.  All books will again be offered for sale to the public at bargain prices (25 cents to $1) to help raise funds to support summer programs at the library, along with other needs. Some past proceeds were also used this year to finance a clean-up and the planting of new flowers and greenery on the library grounds.

For those who miss this larger Saturday sale of all available books, Friends of the Library volunteers also host afternoon mini-sales most other weekends, also on Saturdays at the branch library.
Friends’ book sales take place in the library’s Community Room at 1150 Cypress Avenue (at Alice Street), in the Northeast Los Angeles neighborhood of Cypress Park. Contact (323) 224-0039 for general library information.
The Friends of the Library group plans and staffs fundraising and volunteer support activities for the library — including book sales, at least twice each a year.  New members, and monetary donations, are always welcome. If interested, visit the book sale on October 29, and ask any book sale volunteer how to become involved.
Bulletin Board is a place where you post announcements, milestones & messages.
