It promises to be one of the biggest book and media sale events ever in Marina, as The Friends of the Marina Library have amassed more than 500 cases of books to sell as they hope to raise money for the library's collection, musical events, children's activities and to promote literacy.
Volunteers have been collecting, sorting and pricing books, VHS, DVDs and other media for its huge annual sale at the Marina Library Sept. 17-21. There will be limited sales Sept. 9-13 in the library lobby while even more donations are being accepted Sept. 6-13. On Saturday, Sept. 20, children’s musician Marylee Sunseri will perform twice in the Michelle Lang Children’s Room.
This is the library’s largest fundraiser of the year. In the month of July, the Marina Library had over 5,500 visits from patrons and more than 15,000 items checked out.
