Friends of the Library to host book sale

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) – Friends of the James C. Bolton Library to host book sale at LSUA.

The Friends of the James C. Bolton Library will hold two book sales in the upcoming weeks on the LSUA campus. The first book sale is set for September 10-11 and the second will be held November 12-13. The proceeds from the book sale go toward the purchase of library materials, equipment and supplies. In addition, the funds will help sponsor educational events and to partially fund the professional development of library personnel. 

In the past two years, the Friends of the Library have paid to have chairs reupholstered, purchased electronic books for LSUA nursing students, contributed $5,000 toward a library consultant who conducted a library study, funded landscaping near the library building and sponsored a lecture on Solomon Northup.

Both book sales will be in Oakland Hall, Room 109, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Book sale patrons will also get a chance to view a quilt which will be raffled off. The quilt was made by librarian Bonnie Hines and retired librarians Debra Rollins and Nancy Radonovich. The quilting was done by Sonie Milton.
