We bet you never knew you could take care of so many shopping needs at the Edmonds Library.

Just look at what the Friends of the Edmonds Library sent us regarding its ongoing used book sale.

“Looking for a fun and meaningful gift for Mother’s Day? Shopping on a budget for someone’s birthday? Want some music to enjoy during your spring cleaning? Maybe you’re eager to catch up on your favorite magazine? Ready to stock up on beach reads for summer? Want to refresh your recipes and meals with new cookbooks?”

It that piques your interest, what you need is a visit to the ongoing book sale inside the library, where nothing is sold for more than $5. Most items are much cheaper.

This spring, the ongoing book sale at the Edmonds Library boasts a newly expanded space, where there’s even more books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, and audio books for sale.

All proceeds from purchases of the donated inventory go directly to the library: children’s programs, many adult programs, new desks, teen furniture, children’s computers and even new blinds.

Judy Forgey leads the library’s all-volunteer group, 18 strong.

“The creative ideas from Judy and her team have led to great fun and imaginative ways to increase the popularity of the ongoing sale,” said library volunteer Wendy Kendall.

“Most recently, sales have broken records, meaning good news for Edmonds Library donations. The most popular sections have been cookbooks, biographies, mysteries, and histories.

“New sections to browse are Westerns, and the requested fine arts. Children’s board and picture books are also fast moving. Saturdays seem to be the most popular times for parents and teachers, and rainy days also draw people in.”

The ongoing sale is open whenever the library is open. Donations can be given to the volunteer at the sale, or dropped off in the large wooden bin in the lobby.

A new display, “Books to Movies,” will debut Sunday, May 7.
