Friends of the Lake Bluff Library Book Drive
Saturday, May 16 from 10:00am to 4:00pm
The Friends of the Lake Bluff Library Book Drive is back just in time for spring cleaning! Bring your old
books and textbooks* to the library’s Spruth Room on Saturday, May 16 between 10:00am and 4:00pm.
The west side door will be open to take your donations. We’ll have tax letters available if you’d like a record
of your donation. Donated materials will be sent to Better World
Books, an online bookseller that donates a portion of each sale to
high-impact literacy projects and the Lake Bluff Library. If you would
like to volunteer during this event, please email Linda Schwartz at
firstname.lastname@example.org.Pictured on the left are just some of the 3,300 books we collected last year!
* Books and textbooks only, please. We cannot accept encyclopedias
or other reference materials. We cannot accept donations with
mold, mildew, dirt, water damage, or other excessive damage.
