North Tillamook Library seeking books

North Tillamook Library

It’s that time of year again. In preparation for its annual Memorial Day Weekend sale, the North Tillamook Library in Manzanita needs donations of “gently used” books. These books can be dropped off at the library during regular business hours.

The 2017 version of the annual Memorial Day Weekend sale will take place Friday, May 26, and Saturday, May 27. The Friday evening sale, from 5 to 7 p.m., is for members of the Library Friends only. This gives you Friends first crack at the books.

Fiction, children’s books, and audio and video discs will be available at Pine Grove Community Center on Laneda Ave. in Manzanita. Non-fiction books will be just up the street, across from the library, at the Hoffman Center for the Arts. The Saturday sale will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at both sites. This day the sales are open to the general public.

If you have some good books you can part with, please donate them to the sale. Excluded are encyclopedias, textbooks and sets, such as Time-Life and Readers’ Digest sets.

If you haven’t yet renewed your membership or are thinking of joining the Library Friends, now is the time to get that done. Membership forms are available at the library or from Gail Young (
Remember, the most popular perk of Library Friends membership is the members only pre-sale Friday evening of the annual Memorial Day Weekend book sale.
