Friends of the Library Need Donations

The Friends of the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library need donations of cookbooks, children’s books and DVDs to supply their bookstore, the Chandler Booktique and the annual Friends of the Library Book Sale, September 14-16, 2012, in Ag Hall at the Kansas Expocentre.

Examples of items being sought by the Friends

Donations may be left at the book deposit box located on the loading dock driveway on the northwest side of the library (easiest access is from 10th and Garfield Street). Donations of less than one box may be left at the Information Desk or the Chandler Booktique at the library.

All year long, volunteers sort books and other items in preparation for the annual book sale. Proceeds from the book stores and the annual book sale go to fund library programs, services and resources.

For more information, contact the Friends of the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library at 785-580-4445.

The Chandler Booktique is open Monday – Friday 10am – 6pm, Saturday 10am – 5pm and Sunday 12-5pm.
