Fabulous February Book Sale
Friends of the Tehachapi Library
February 29, 2020
The Tehachapi Friends of the Library had another great sale on Feb. 15, with around $1,500 coming in from both the Bag Sale and the Antique, Rare and Special Book Sale. That means a lot of people came in to help out by buying books.
But that’s not the only way the Tehachapi Community helped out. Albertson’s donated the bags for the Bag Sale, BSE Rents helped by loaning large tables so all the books could be well displayed. The City of Tehachapi made sure that the information about the sale was on those big signs that you pass as you come into town and Carlos’ Donuts provided delicious fuel for all the volunteers. Plus all the people that helped set up, work at the sale and clear up afterward.
And of course all the folks that donate their books. Speaking of books, the Friends of the Library are always looking for donations, and not just books. In our Book Shop you’ll also find CDs and DVDs and even other items on occasion. While regular donations are encouraged to be three to four boxes or bags, if you’ve got a lot of books to donate, give us a call, and we’ll work something out.
These books don’t just go to the Seasonal Sales, they often go into the Book Shop on both sides of the wall right at the base of the stairs. These books are available whenever the Library is open and constantly have new books added. This is because the folks that know about the Book Shop know it has some of the best books for the price in town. Which explains why so many books get sold every week.
