UPCOMING LIBRARY EVENTS SUPPORTED BY THE FRIENDS

Friends of the Albany Library are working on planning and supporting future library events. We will update the site as new Friends supported events are developed and planned. We enjoy supporting and providing community events that all can enjoy! 

 

 

On-Site Book Sale October 8th and 9th! 

Our next on-site book sale is scheduled October 8th and 9th in the Albany Community Center Big Room. It will be a 50-cent sale with the addition of some higher priced Christmas and Hanukkah items.

Saturday, October 8th:  9:30AM – 5:30PM
Sunday, October 9th: 11:00AM – 4:00PM

We will be seeking volunteers for the Book Sale from the Friends of the Albany Library.  As in prior sales, your contributions and support are much appreciated! We can’t do it without you! 

 

 

NO BOOK DONATIONS ACCEPTED UNTIL AFTER THE OCTOBER BOOK SALE!

Many thanks to all our supporters who have been donating books since the library reopened.  However, due to the large volume of books we have received, and our preparations for the October Book Sale, we are temporarily unable to take donations. We will let you know when we are able to accept donations again.

   

 

RESELLABLE DONATIONS ONLY PLEASE!

Please do NOT DONATE items that are so worn that they cannot be sold.   For items that are not saleable, we suggest the recycle bin, or the El Cerrito Recycling Center.  Thank you for your understanding.  

 


Get Involved!
