Friends bookshop to close during Sunset renovation
The Friends of the Library Bookshop will close at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 7, and reopen after renovation of the Sunset Theatre is completed.
Work on the theatre is tentatively slated to begin in August and is expected to last up to 240 days.
The bookshop operates in a cityowned building at 226 Sunset Avenue, adjoining a building beside the Sunset that will become the theatre’s new lobby. Modifications to the adjoining building will encompass the back part of the bookshop.
The bookshop, staffed entirely by volunteers from the Friends, sells donated books and discarded library material. All proceeds supplement the library’s book budget. Sale of highlighted items from the bookshop will continue in the upstairs lobby of the Asheboro library. Book donations will be not accepted while the bookshop is closed, but small gifts of recent popular titles and children’s books can be dropped off at the library.
All proceeds from the bookshop go to supplement the Asheboro library’s book budget. The shop is stocked with books, audio visuals and other items withdrawn from the library collection and from donations.
We have lots of fantastic books — drop in and see them!
We accept good conditioned hardcover and paperback books in all subjects. We also accept cassettes, videotapes and CDs, which we sell at our Bookshop. We will be glad to give you a receipt for your donation, however we do not evaluate the books and you are responsible for estimating the value for deductions.
Help us continue to offer the greatest selection of books at the best possible prices by donating your books using any of the following options:
Please stop by the book shop when we are open for book donations of any size. If you do not have a vehicle and have four boxes or more, call 336.629.1536 and we will arrange to have a volunteer contact you for a book pick up.
