Where we live: Town of Tonawanda

Town of Tonawanda

A record number of book donations led the Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda Friends of the Library to add a day to this year’s “Big Book Sale.”

The sale begins Wednesday at 4 and runs until 8 p.m. for members only who can join at the door in Lincoln Arena, 1200 Parker Blvd. Hours are 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Saturday with a bag sale at the end of the day. Saturday is also Kids Day with free craft making and a visit from the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library’s owl mascot.

“It’s a fantastic year for readers,” Laura Glass, president of the Friends, said in a news release. “We currently have nearly 15,000 donated books, audio books and DVDs ready for the sale. And all the money raised goes right to our town libraries.”

Proceeds from this year’s sale will go toward planned improvements at the Kenilworth Library including replacing the community room’s original windows with new energy efficient windows, lighting, paint, carpeting, storage, furniture and landscaping, Glass said.
