The Camden Public Library is offering a Winterfest Book Sale in the new Book Shed on Saturday and Sunday, February 3 and 4, and Saturday and Sunday, February 10 and 11, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The book sales are a significant part of the library’s annual fundraising for books and programs; in fact, the library raises over half of its operating expenses from book sales, donations, grants, and other such income.
 
The books cover an enormous range of topics.
 
“While we always have wonderful selections in our biography, history, and gardening categories, we have been benefited by donations of a number of great collections of popular fiction in recent weeks,” said Nikki Maounis, library director, in a news release. “Anyone who loves the books of Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler, Robin Cook, Michael Crichton, and authors of similar thrillers will have plenty to choose from!”
 
The library’s book sales are organized and run entirely by volunteers; in fact, the “new” Book Shed was rebuilt and insulated by volunteer efforts. The volunteers will be able, for the first time, to continue the work of collecting and sorting books throughout the winter, thanks to the renovation project organized by Jean White and shepherded by David Feldman. “The winterization project was a perfect example of what can be accomplished by dedicated volunteers, generous community support (especially from the Maine Community Foundation), and other community organizations like Habitat for Humanity,” commented Nikki Maounis.
 
The book sales are made possible by generous donations of books; the Camden Public Library is very grateful to receive donations of nice, well cared for books of any age and for any age (though please no books with mold or mildew) at the Book Shed any Tuesday between 9:00 and noon throughout the year. The Book Shed is adjacent to the Amphitheatre, in the “Meadow Parking Lot.” Call Camden Public Library for more information 207-236-3440.
