Library Booksale - August 1-27

August is the time for the annual Lillie M. Evans Friends of the Library book sale! The book sale runs from August 1-August 27 and offers a great selection of books, audios, and DVDs. Come back weekly to stock up on bargains – each week the selections are fewer but the prices decrease. Donations for the sale are always welcome and come in year-round. All proceeds from the book sale return to the library as funding for special projects of the Friends of the Lillie M. Evans Library District in Princeville.

Most library users would be surprised to learn how many services and programs are supported by the Friends. These have included: the furniture in the children’s and young adult areas, the sound equipment for the meeting room, the pamphlet file in the foyer, gift certificates for Holiday Homecoming, decorations for the garden, benches in front of the library, cutting systems for library programs & displays, the wii entertainment system & games, and a globe for the children’s area. The Friends also assist with the Summer Reading Program by sponsoring a children’s program, providing a teen Summer Reading prize, and sponsoring the end of the summer party for our readers. Please contact the library at 309-385-4540 or visit our website at to find out how to become a member of the Friends.
