FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY BOOK SALE TO BENEFIT CASA GRANDE PUBLIC LIBRARY.

[Casa Grande, AZ]— The Friends of the Casa Grande Public Library, longtime supporters of literacy in our community, are excited to announce a week-long fundraiser book sale with all proceeds benefiting the Casa Grande Public Library.


The event will take place January 20th -27th at 417 N. Florence Street in downtown Casa Grande and features a diverse selection of gently used books spanning various genres, including fiction, nonfiction, children's literature, DVDs, and music CDs. This initiative aims to raise funds to enhance the library's programs, services, and resources for the benefit of the entire community.


"We are incredibly grateful to the Friends of the Library, and we recognize the need to replenish their funds to continue supporting our library," said Amber Kent, Library Manager. "This book sale provides a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together, contribute, and help ensure the sustained success of our local library."


To make this event a success, the Friends are asking for volunteers to help with various aspects of the book sale. Opportunities include setting up the event, assisting customers, and cleaning up after the sale. Volunteers play a crucial role in ensuring the smooth operation of the event and contributing to its overall success.


"We invite community members to join us in making a positive impact on our public library. Volunteering is a fantastic way to get involved, meet fellow book enthusiasts, and contribute to a meaningful cause," said Bonnie Warren, the Chair of the Book Sale Committee. To volunteer, please visit friendscglibrary.org or send an email to: focglibrary@gmail.com.


The Friends are currently accepting gently used books, DVDs, and CD donations from the community. If you have books in good condition that you wish to donate, please consider supporting this important cause.


Donations may be made at either the main library at 449 N. Drylake Street, or the Vista Grande location at 1556 N. Arizola Road during regular business hours. If you have a large collection to donate, please call the main library at (520) 421-8710 to make arrangements. In 2023, the Friends of the Library donated over $50,000 to the Casa Grande Public Library.
