BIG CHANGES!

Well, when the blogger comes back, at least it's with significant news! Due to the county-wide change in library hours, there will be big changes for our Semi-Annual Book Sale as well.

First, FRIENDS NIGHT will be on WEDNESDAY night, instead of Thursday. Friends Night is a members' only night – one of the benefits of being a current, paid-up, Friend of the Reston Regional Library. It is traditionally the first night of the Semi-Annual Book sale. It will still be the first night, but the sale will begin on WEDNESDAY evening and run through Sunday

Second, SALES HOURS will change. We are still finalizing those times, so stay tuned. We do know that FRIENDS NIGHT will start earlier, at FIVE O’CLOCK instead of SIX!

Third, there will be NO CHILDRENS BOOKS AVAILABLE AT THE SEMI-ANNUAL USED BOOK SALE.

Due to numerous requests, we are separating out the children’s books for a CHILDREN’S BOOK SALE on Saturday and Sunday, August 22-23. This sale will be in Meeting Room 2 and will also feature a “Teachers’ Corner”.

Our plan is to continue future sales in this fashion barring some unforeseen difficulty. Separating these books out will give us more room for both categories – children’s books during the children’s book sale and that entire corner to use for sales space during the Semi-Annual Book sale at the end of September. As always, we will stock continuously.

These changes in times, dates, and sales content present logistical challenges which our fabulous volunteers will need to work through. We appreciate your patience and support while we do so. If you have a great idea that might help, or even better, have a few hours to donate,
e-mail us!
