Friends of George Memorial Library Plan Book Sale for Libraries’ Anniversary Celebration

In conjunction with Fort Bend County Libraries’ (FBCL) 75th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, October 8th, the Friends of the George Memorial Library will have a major Book Sale from 10 AM to 2 PM, at the front entrance of the library, located at 1001 Golfview in Richmond.

People who love books, people who love bargains, and people who need to get rid of some spare change will find a lot in common at the Friends of the Library Book Sale, where they will discover adult and children’s books, magazines, DVDs, videos and much more — all at prices that are hard to beat!

The Friends of the George Memorial Library will also be releasing a commemorative book bag for the library system’s 75th anniversary. These special-edition, reusable book bags will be available for $3.

Donations of used books, DVDs, tapes and CDs are always welcome, and may be taken to the library during regular business hours. All contributions are tax-deductible. Membership applications will be available for people who would like to join the Friends of George Memorial Library.

Proceeds from the book sales and annual membership dues help to underwrite the costs of special programming and various cultural events at the libraries.
