Amador library schedules book drive

JACKSON — Do you have some nice books that are taking up room on your bookshelf?

If so, why not sort through them and donate some to the Friends of the Amador County Library.

The friends is holding a book drive on Saturday, Aug. 4 at its book storage facility behind the old courthouse in Jackson, 42 A Summit St., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Every year the friends collect books from generous donors and then sell them to raise money for the county library. This year’s book collection efforts are particularly important as the county library budget has been cut along with most county services.

Because of the friends’ successful book sales and fundraisers, the non-profit organization has been able to contribute significantly to the library, enabling the purchase of new books, e-books, online resources and other important library services.

“We couldn’t do what we do for the library without the generous donations from so many,” said Janie Brown, president of the friends board of directors. “I hope everyone who loves books will help us continue to support our excellent library system.”

For those who have books to donate but who can’t make the Aug. 4 book drive, the friends have set up donation boxes at the following locations: El Dorado Savings Bank, 460 Highway 49, Sutter Creek; Bank of Amador, 422 Sutter St., Jackson; Bank of Amador, 26395 Buckhorn Ridge Road, Pioneer; Clark’s Corner, 12 West Main, Ione; and Pokerville Market, 18170 State Highway 49, Plymouth.

Gently read books and lightly used audio-visual materials are requested. The friends cannot accept donations of books in poor condition, manuals or magazines. If you have a major donation of books and can’t make it to the book storage or the other drop off locations contact the friends at 209-296-5541 and someone will pick up your donations.

All donations to the nonprofit organization are tax deductible. Monetary contributions are always appreciated and can be sent to FACL, PO Box 701, Jackson, 95642, or can be made online at friendsoftheamadorcountylibrary.org.
