This year’s Friends of C.H. Booth Library annual Holiday Sale will be Saturday, December 2, from 9:30 am to 5 pm; and Sunday, December 3, from 11 am to 5 pm, in the lower meeting room of C.H. Booth Library, 25 Main Street.
All are invited to shop for unique, reasonably priced, one-of-a-kind gifts and support the local library at the same time.
This year there is a large assortment of new and almost new books along with many unique gift items for all ages and interests. Items include sealed CDs, DVDs, audio books, puzzles, toys, and a nice selection of jewelry.
Generous area merchants have also donated many new items for this event.
Marge Gingolaski, the manager of the Holiday Sale and of The Little Book Store, which offers gently used books and boutique items for purchase year-round at the library, says the selection varies annually.
“Because all items are donated, the selection is different each year,” Ms Gingolaski said. “For example, this year we received such a large selection of vintage jewelry that we asked a vintage jewelry expert to appraise its condition and value.
“You can count on seeing everything from books and holiday themed items to a large selection of high-quality sealed jigsaw puzzles, DVDs and CDs,” she added. “And this year we even have some sports memorabilia… a golf ball signed by Gregg Norman and a signed picture of Stan Musial.”
The Friends of C.H. Booth Library also received a large donation of art and photography books that, Ms Gingolaski feels, would make for beautiful gifts.
“People usually pick up the gift cards we offer right away because we offer them at a discount from face value, which we can do because they are donated,” she also mentioned.
