Library Book Sale Generates $2,000

Pickler Memorial Library sold approximately 5,000 items and raised $2,000 to support Library programs and the 2010 Children’s Literature Festival during its 4th Annual Book Sale that took place in September.

The event also featured a special Truman night for faculty, staff and students, with jazz music by a student combo of Kayla Smalley, Drew Williams, Eric Schweizer, Devin Cline, Mike Tripp and Brian Speise, and the creative talents of Todd Kuhns. In addition, two open sale days took place Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.

Library staff would like to thank members of the community who donated books and other materials for the sale, as well as all who attended and browsed the offerings, had fun and made purchases.

The Library has exhausted its backlog of books to sell and invites community members to clean their closets, bookshelves and video racks to make donations for next year’s sale.

Donations may be delivered to the Dean’s Office on the first floor of Pickler Memorial Library. Call 785.4038 for more details.
