Downers Grove Library book sale accepting donations

DOWNERS GROVE – The Downers Grove Friends of the Library is accepting donations for its ninth annual book sale, titled "Bon Appetit, Bon Noir and Bon Voyage."

The sale is on Oct. 25 and 26.

Donations of gently used mystery, travel and cookbooks can be given up to the date of the book sale at the Downers Grove Public Library, 1050 Curtiss St., during regular library hours.

Books must be marked for the FOL’s book sale.

While past FOL book sales have concentrated solely on travel and cook books, this year’s sale will also offer mystery books as part of the sale. Next year will offer a different kind of book in addition to the traditional travel and cook books.

Income earned from the sale will be used to fund projects supported by the FOL, including prizes for the summer reading programs, the monthly travel slide series and miscellaneous equipment and requirements not included in the Public Library budget.

The Downers Grove Friends of the Library is a volunteer group that is known for its monthly “Adventures in Travel” programs and for helping the Downers Grove Library with projects that help make it one of the best libraries in the western suburbs.
For questions or further information, contact Joni Hansen at 630-969-5477 or Kevin Deany at 630-515-0230.
