The Friends of the West Grey Library are gearing up to relaunch their very popular Book Sale, after a COVID-year break. With a move to the Durham Legion Branch 308 at 271 Bruce St N to accommodate the books they’ve accumulated, the favourite event among book-lovers starts at 1 pm on Friday, October 22nd until 7 pm, then re-opens on Saturday, October 23rd for a full day, 9 am to 4 pm. Lois Lockner, Friends of the Library President, reports that, “ patrons have been asking and we are delighted to once again offer this sale, It will be bigger and better than ever! “ Covid protocols will be followed; ie masking, proof of vaccination, photo id and contact tracing.
The Friends, which had been steadily expanding the book sale to two and then three events a year before COVID hit, uses proceeds from the sale to support programs at all library branches in West Grey. Past help has included new seating for adults and youth, upgrades to the computer room and enhancing the Summer Reading Program for Children.
Items include DVD’s and books for all ages, both fiction and non-fiction. Arrive early for best selection!
At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.
South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
Please consider supporting South Grey News with a donation in lieu of a subscription fee and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
