We’re thrilled to say “Thank You” to the Friends of the Levittown Library for their generous donation of $20,000. These dedicated volunteers raised the funds primarily through their semi-annual book sales.
The Friends next book sale, scheduled to begin October 13, will kick off with a special “Estate Book Sale.” Thanks to a gift from the estate of a book collector/dealer, the Friends received approximately 4,000 collectible books that they will have available for sale.
Most of the estate collection – approximately 90% – consists of non-fiction titles, with a large number focused on history/war/military titles, along with books on art, animals and nature, transportation (cars/trains/ships), and films and Hollywood legends of the 40s, 50s and 60s. Fiction titles fall largely under the category of classics; many of these are vintage editions or boxed reproductions of first editions. Most books at this special Estate Sale will be priced between $2 and $5.
In addition to raising funds to support the library, the Friends also sponsor programming at the Levittown branch.
