OUR eBay SHOP IS GOING STRONG!

FONL has redoubled its efforts to sell books online--thanks to Marie Kyle and her team of seven other dedicated volunteers.

In just the first few months of this year, Marie reports that more than $1,2000 has been raised through online sales; current listings totaled more than $1,400 at the end of February.

What, among all that is donated, is most likely to make it to eBay rather than be sold in the lobby or at our thrice-early book sales? "We have found the items that sell best on eBay are classic or vintage-type books,"Marie explains. "Book collection series are also good-selling items and we've had success with homeschooling textbooks."

Click here to visit our eBay shop and see what is currently listed, or go to www.charity.ebay.com and search for Friends of the Nipomo Library.

AND OUR WINNER WAS...

Carol Oberlies was the lucky winner of the "For Your Reading Pleasure" gift basket as part of the Friends' Membership Month in February. All Friends members who joined or renewed their memberships during February were entered into the gift basket drawing. Congratulations, Carol!

OUR MARCH 2024 BOOK SALE WAS A ROUSING SUCCESS!

Beautiful weather and abundant sunshine brought out many literary bargain hunters at our March 9 book sale. Our book sale browsers bought adult fiction and nonfiction (mystery, romance, biography, gardening, travel, history, cookbooks--you name it), children's books, jigsaw puzzles, CDs, and DVDs. The Friends netted $926 in book sales and also signed up a record-breaking number of new and renewed members.

Our next book sale is scheduled for Saturday, July 13, 10am to 2pm. Come and help us set an even greater record for book sales!

FRIENDS' WINDOW FEATURED DRAMA CLUB

In April 2024, the Friends' window in the library lobby hosted the Nipomo Theatre Company. The display featured the company's latest production, Macbeth, which was performed in May. Under the guidance of Cadence Mitchell, the theatre program includes students from both Nipomo High and Central Coast New Tech High.
