On Sunday, you can purchase a bag full of books for just $5! The "Friends of the Library" will provide the bag. This event is a great way to get some new (to you) reading material while also supporting the community.

The Friends of the Pikes Peak Library District was established in 1955 and has over 900 members. This group runs the bookstores at three of the local libraries including Penrose, Library 21C, and East. Their mission is to support, promote, and advocate for our wonderful library system.

To learn more about this organization and volunteer opportunities, please visit their website.

With all the new reading material you find at the book sale, consider registering for the Adult Reading Program hosted by the Pikes Peak Library District. There are still a few weeks left! You can learn more about that here.

I'll see you at the library!
