Announcement about our April Sale

April 1, 2020

Dear Friends and Volunteers:

The Board of the Friends of the Eugene Public Library met this morning and made the difficult decision to cancel our annual sale for 2020.  We share your disappointment that this much loved community event will not take place this year.

Many of you have been working on the specific activities that support this sale, some of you year round. All of you have supported the effort through time, donations, ideas, and with other resources. As the Board discussed this decision, we found ourselves appreciating, more than ever, the role of our library in our community, and the many volunteers, donors, and Friends who contribute each year to this vibrant resource.

We are already hard at work exploring ways to raise funds from our donated book inventory, reviewing our operations, and reinvesting in various sales activities, including our Amazon storefront and our Second Hand Prose bookstore. We look forward to keeping you updated as to our plans, and we thank you for your support of the Friends!

Thank you,

Connie Regali, President, Friends of the Eugene Public Librar
