2017 - 2018   BOOK EVENTS

The all-volunteer, non-profit Friends of the Wilton Manors Library will again host its Book Events at the city's yard sales at Hagen Park on the second Saturday of every month from December 2017 through March 2018.  There will be two Book Fairs indoors in the Hagen Park Community Center: the Winter Book Fair on Saturday, February 11, 2018, and the Summer Book Fair on Saturday, July 14, 2018.

Monetary donations for used books, videos and music CDs received at these events are an important source of revenue which enables the Friends of the Library to underwrite the cost of children's programming; purchase of movie DVDs, audio books, large-print books, and E-books; and the acquisition of computers and other equipment at our local public library. 

Volunteers are always needed at these book events.  If you would like to assist, please contact Paul Kuta at 954-566-9019.
