The infographic presented on the screen contains the following text: 'I want to read that!' You buy a book. And READ! And maybe, read it again. And maybe, loan it to a friend as well. Swell! Now what? Your shelves are full; your closets stuffed. Image of lightbulb. Moment of incandescent illumination (Old school). Image of arrow pointing right. Donate it to us! The Friends of the College-Rolando Library accept donations of books, cds, dvds, audio/visual cassettes, and magazines. Volunteers sort your donations. Lobby carts. Great new donations go to the carts in the Library lobby right away. Books are available/for sale during all hours that the library is open. Everything old is new again -- 'I want to read THAT!' Friends Room. Other donations are shelved in the Friends Room, open to the public for Book Sales on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Friendly volunteers staff the Friends Room during Book Sales. Friendly signs in front of the Library point the way to the Friends Room on Book Sales days. Book Fairs. Occasionally, the Friends set up Book Fairs on the library terrace -- dates TBA. Volunteers are always welcome to help set up, staff, clean up/box up and reshelve. Donations that we can't sell, we donate to other local nonprofits, schools, other libraries, and institutional reading programs. The Proceeds from your donations pay for Library events and programs -- which you are very welcome to attend! New books and library materials -- which you borrow! Thanks to our volunteers! They are the Library's best Friends. So in the end, we all Win -- Win -- Win -- Win.

Contact us if you'd like to help with Book Sales.
