FRIENDS expand sale of books

The FRIENDS of New Milford Public Library have a new, expanded location in the lobby of the library to house their books for sale.

A December contest was held to name the new space, and Maryann Jackson’s suggestion of Friendly Finds was chosen.

The prize consisted of a FRIENDS tote bag full of books, movies, music and $20 gift certificate to purchase items from the book cart or at the annual sale in July.

Second-place winner was Joel L., who won a $10 gift certificate, with the suggestion The Best of Friends and third-place winner was Barbara T, who won a $5 gift certificate, with the suggestion of The Friendly Nook.

The variety of adult and children’s books and other items for sale is regularly refreshed.

In addition, one area will now highlight a monthly theme.

February’s cart selections focus on romance, love and music.

All proceeds help provide programs and services that are not covered by the library’s budget.
