Friends of the Livingston Library Seeks Donations for its Beach Books & Bling Sale

Friends of the Livingston Library is now seeking donations of jewelry from the public through May 15. Donated jewelry will be sold during the Friends Beach Books & Bling Sale which will take place in the Library Program Room on Friday, June 14 through Sunday, June, 16. Friends Board Treasurer Teresa Allard who co-manages the sale explains, “Our summer fair will offer a wide array of jewelry and books at great prices. The Program Room will house several tables devoted to the donated jewelry and thousands of adult fiction books and books for children, ideal for summer reading. Our Beach Books & Bling Sale will also have a table of games and puzzles. On Sunday, the event will feature a Bag Sale for books; jewelry will be sold at two pieces for the price of one.”

Allard explains that through mid-May a special box is set up in the Library lobby for the collection of jewelry. All items should be in saleable condition. Friends is not able to sell, re-donate, or otherwise able to re-direct certain materials. Disposing of these items increases recycling costs and absorbs limited volunteer time so Friends hopes the public will abide by the guidelines. Since the sale will not feature personal wear accessories, watches, and household bric-a-brac, we are unable to accept such items for donation.

Donations of books, puzzles, games, and vintage ephemera for the book portion of the sale are welcome all year round. Anytime the Library is open, members of the community may drop off items in the Friends Book Donation Bin in the lobby. Patrons are asked to limit book donations to 30 books at any given time, however, arrangements can be made with Friends for larger donations. Friends appreciates the donation of gently used books in all categories, games, puzzles, CDs, DVDs, and audio books on CD. Friends also asks that people arrange for private disposal of books in poor condition, contemporary magazines, VHS tapes, encyclopedias, text books below college level, and text books more than 10 years old. Friends does accept college and graduate level text books that have been published within the last ten years. Staff at the Library Patron Services Desk can provide a tax receipt for donations.
