Each year, the Friends hold two major book sales, in the spring and fall, on the grounds of the city library, and a smaller holiday sale in the Community Center that features children and youth books. The three book sales — together with Friends’ memberships — are major fundraisers that support diverse library programs for toddlers, middle school and teenage youth, and adults — among them Spanish and French Circle times, Summer and Winter Quest, Arts & Crafts programs for children, Little Free Libraries, Spring for Poetry in Takoma Park, and speakers.
The the next Friends of the Takoma Park Maryland Library sale will be May 12 from 10 to 3 on the library lawn. The library is now accepting donations. Bring your donations to the library. If you have a large quantity (more than a box) please call the library first ((301) 891-7259).
