What are Friends of the Abilene Public Library (FAPL)? First off, the "friends" are volunteers who enjoy reading and or helping the Abilene Public Library. More so than ever before the Library is needing volunteers to assist with this year's annual "Friends of the Abilene Public Library Book Sale."

Friends of the Abilene Public Library get into the Sneak-A-Peek Book Sale

Friends are needed before, during, and after the annual book sale, plus friends get to attend the "Sneak-A-Peek" pre-book sale. Become a Friend volunteer and sign up online. Although, friends are needed all year long to assist the Abilene Library staff.

The FAPL is focused on achieving its goal of getting an all-new main public library in the new historic Abilene Heritage Square. This sale adds to their goal they pledged $500,000. This is not just about a book sale, it's about giving Abilene a spacious brand new Abilene Public Library.

You can become a member of the FAPL by volunteering, and that can be done all year round. However, for this sale time is of the essence, sign up today and become a volunteer as this year's sale will begin on Thursday, June 15th, and continue through Sunday, June 18th. Wouldn't a book, CD, DVD, VHS tape, or vinyl album make a great Father's Day gift?

If you really, really want to help out Friends of the Abilene Public Library you can donate online as well, or drop it off at 202 Cedar Street in downtown Abilene with your donation.

If you are planning on attending this year's book sale the event begins Thursday, June 15th from 5 until 8 pm, Friday from 10 AM until 7 pm, Saturday from 10 AM until 5 PM, and Sunday with the fili-the-bag sale from 1 pm to 4 pm. Let's all help to build the new library and I'll see you at the book sale.
