Friends of the Hancock County Public Library
The Friends of the Library board meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of the month at the library at 4:30 p.m.
The purpose of the Friends is to maintain organization of persons who are interested in increasing, improving, and making better known the resources and services of the library through cultural and educational events, raising funds to purchase library equipment and materials, and assisting the library service projects.
The Friends of the Hancock County Public Library will hold their gently-used book sale from Friday to Monday, May 3-6, at the Greenfield location. The Friends also offer used audio books, DVDs and CDs.
From 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., Friends shop their members-only preview sale. Walk-ins can join the organization at a cost of $10 and shop the preview that night until 7:30 p.m. Pick up a membership form across from the library circulation desk.
The sale opens to the public on Saturday, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and Sunday, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Most hardbacks cost only a dollar, and paperbacks cost 50 cents.
Closeout prices start at 9:00 a.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. on Monday. A paper grocery bag full of books sells for $2, a plastic bag for $1. Bring your own bag.
Proceeds will help fund concerts, children’s events, and summer reading club prizes for the library.
Make room at home and get a tax break for helping the Hancock County Public Library. Drop off your gently used books, DVDs, and music CDs on Tuesday, April 16, and Mondays May 20 and June 17 at the side delivery entrance (northeast corner) of the library in Greenfield between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. A volunteer will assist when someone rings the bell. Please request your tax receipt at the same time.
Because of limited space, donations can only be made on specified dates.
Look for bargain books and other media for sale on shelves near the Greenfield entrance, to the left. Average hardback prices start at $2, children's hardbacks $1, and DVDs $2. The branch in New Palestine also has sale items on a marked cart.
Proceeds from sales by the Friends of the Hancock County Public Library, a non-profit volunteer group, fund programs and special equipment.
