Hoodland Library book sale aim to quench reading thirst posted on 06/02/2018

With warmer days arriving, the end of the school year in sight and the start of vacation season rapidly approaching, summer reading returns as an activity to enjoy whether soaking up sun at a beach destination or keeping cool in the long, light-filled evenings.

For those in the Mount Hood region still searching for that perfect page turner, the Friends of the Hoodland Library are conducting a book sale June 22, 23, 29 and 30, at the Hoodland Library, located at 24525 East Welches Road in Welches.

The sale will take place from noon to 4 p.m. daily in the community room of the library, and all proceeds will benefit the library and its community programming. All books available at the sale are donated by members of the Friends of the Library.

“They’re a valuable resource for the library,” library assistant Dianne Downey said, describing the organization’s fundraising activities. “It’s basically how we base our programming.”

Proceeds from prior sales along with individual donations have helped the library purchase a projector for the community room, a rug for the children’s room and chairs for computer internet stations, as well as funding children’s and adult programs.

Upcoming children’s programs include activities such as summer reading, Lego building and an art program offered during the summer months. Offerings for adults include beginner ukulele lessons, summer reading and a wellness program conducted by a certified health coach.

The support of the Friends has also allowed the library to previously host guest speakers, including regional authors Jane Kirkpatrick and Brian Doyle. The library plans to continue to host speakers during the fall months.

“The more funding they can provide, the more resources we can provide the community,” Downey said, regarding the group’s support of the library. She added that the library hopes to increase programming to reach more of the public and address additional community interests.

Downey encourages the public to get involved and join the organization, and that applications are available at the library and there is no fee to join.

The book sale was previously a two-day sale. This year the sale has been extended to two weekends in an attempt to include people that could not attend due to scheduling. The sale will remain available during the week to further increase public access.

For additional information regarding the book sale or library programming contact the Hoodland Library at 503-622-3460 or visit the library website at www.ci.sandy.or.us/hoodland-library.
