Friends of The City Library to Host a Book Drive

The Friends of The City Library in Salt Lake City is holding a book drive to help support Salt Lake’s public library system. The drive will take place on Saturday, October 3rd at the downtown City Library.

Many of us have been reading more while staying at home and have been decluttering and organizing, and the FOTL is hoping that you’ll consider donating books of any kind, for any age, as well as DVDs, Blu-rays, CDs and vinyl records. During the Book Drive books can be donated without leaving your car. A drop off zone will be located on the West side of the library, on 200 East, where masked and gloved volunteers will accept your donations through your car window. Donated items are then quarantined before being sold through the Friends’ online stores. Funds from the book sales are used to support The City Library’s programs. “We are grateful for donations from readers in the Salt Lake Valley,” said Jeff Mower, Executive Director of the Friends of The City Library, “and we hope that if you’re looking for new material to read you’ll consider purchasing one of our Mystery Bag of Books (for both children and adults) or shop our Amazon store.”
