Maynard, MA - The Friends of the Maynard Library one day pre-summer sale, is going on right now, as I write this, ... until 4:00 PM today. Anyone can purchase books VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs, and other media displayed in the Roosevelt Room, on the ground floor of the Library at 77 Nason Street. Proceeds go to benefit the group. Prices are posted on the wall and at the check out table, at the sale. For those who can't make it today, The Friends holds another, bigger, sale in October, which stays open for an entire weekend.
In addition, the Intersection Gallery, part of the ArtSpace Community, is donating 10% of all sales at the gallery today to the Maynard Public Library. The Gallery is located at 63 Nason Street and is open until 6 PM.
I asked Aly Severance, President of The Friends of the Library, how the sale was going. She told me that they expect to raise about $2,000 during the day. The Friends of the Library uses the funds to supplement library services, such as providing museum passes, providing classic film viewing via Kanopy Stream, inviting guest speakers, and purchasing audio and video equipment for use in the library, among other benefits.
