A large collection of especially beautiful donated books in good condition will be offered at the Georgetown Public Library book sale on Saturday, Nov. 6 for around $2 a book, according to Georgetown Library Friends President Joe Ryan and his wife Mary, who was a professional librarian for years and is now the Friends treasurer.
“They are mostly all recent donations given to the library since the pandemic when people weren’t able to bring them to the library for the year when it was closed,” Mary Ryan said. “They are all genres and cover all categories.”
Being organized by Pat Henry, the sale will take place 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the downstairs community room at the public library at 3260 R St. NW.
The Georgetown Library Friends, part of the Federation of Friends for D.C. Public Library, has been reconstituted during the pandemic with new board members and volunteers. “We are always seeking new members,” said the Ryans.
Linda Jones, Library Manager at the Georgetown Neighborhood Library, liaisons with the Georgetown Library Friends. All the proceeds go to Georgetown special program expenses.
