Catawba County Library
Press Release

NEWTON, N.C. – The Catawba County Friends of the Library are hosting their annual book sale in support of library programs that benefit the community. The sale will take place Wednesday, August 7 through Saturday, August 10 at the Main Library in Newton (115 West C Street).

Each summer, the Friends compile all the donations they receive throughout the year and put them out for the public to buy. Tables feature volumes of fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, cookbooks, health and fitness guides, romance novels, coffee table books, and much more, including DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks. If you’re looking to build your own library, this is the place to do it affordably!

With the money raised from the annual book sale, the Friends generously support the library’s initiatives, including Summer Learning, author visits, community reads, and other programs that promote early childhood literacy, job and career development, technology tutoring, and personal enrichment. The Friends also sponsor prizes for the library’s health and fitness challenges, support the Library Endowment, and sell gift baskets, flash drives, ear buds, canvas book bags, and coffee, not only to cultivate income for the library but also to make the library experience more comfortable and convenient for patrons.

More than anything, the Friends make the effort to get involved in community outreach, share their enthusiasm for the library, and promote the organization every chance they get. It’s this word of mouth and their tireless advocacy that do so much good for the causes that the library espouses. The group is an invaluable resource in facilitating the library’s role in the life of the community.
