Benefits of participating in the sale include:

·Marketing:  While you gather up your items to sell, the Friends will take care of marketing your sale!  They’ll make a map and list.  They’ll post the sale online.  They’ll deliver your yard signs.  They’ll take care of it all!

·Recycling options:  The Friends will also be coordinating pickup of any leftovers  by St. Vincent de Paul of Reedsburg and Easter Seals the week following the sales.   

·Donating to a good cause:   The Friends of the Spring Green Community Library support the library by funding things outside of the normal library budget, including program speakers and demonstrations, furniture, etc.

Who the Friends are

The Friends of the Spring Green Community Library is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed to enhance and improve library services to its community.

Their purpose

To support, improve, and enhance our library through programming, fundraising, volunteering, advocacy, and protecting the freedom to read.

What they provide

We try to help the library with things outside the normal Library budget such as rotating audio books, bike racks, book carts, furniture, computers, special summer programs, program speakers and demonstrations.

How the Friends generate funds

Membership dues, December Bake Sale, Book bag sales, and sales of donated books.

When the Friends collect used books

The Friends accept donations of gently used books for resale at the library. Book collections take place on the first Saturday of each month, between the hours of 10 am - noon. Proceeds from the sales help support the library and related activities.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not take magazines, textbooks, encyclopedias, old computer manuals or damaged (moldy, dirty, broken binding) books.

 

Friends of the library host a bake sale in conjunction with Spring Green's Country Christmas weekend. Donations will be accepted for the Friends Annual Bake Sale.

 

The Friends also provide financial support for library programming. Check out the Adult Programs page for more information.
