Are you having a book sale....??

Dear Circ,

I went out with a friend and she was telling me that you are having a book sale! I thought you were a lending library. Why are you selling books?

You're not closing are you? Or phasing out books? I'd be really upset about that!

I don't know what I'd do without you...

Imagining Imogene

Dear Genie,

Nope, we're not phasing out books, and we're certainly not closing. The Friends of the Roselle Public Library are having their semi-annual book sale. Through out the year, people donate used books and other items. We can't keep all the donations, so our Friends organize the materials and sell them at greatly reduced prices twice a year. The proceeds of the sale support the library in all kinds of ways. This spring the sale is scheduled for April 22 & 23, Saturday 9:30 am - 3 pm, and Sunday, 1 - 4 pm. What could be a better way for our friends to share our delight in books? So come on in, maybe you'll find a gem!


Dear Readers,
Are you wondering about the image above? No, this person is not "Dear Circ" and is not employed by the Roselle Public Library. Nor is she a patron of ours. The person above is not a famous author, at least not yet! She wrote her first novel about a woman who lands in a small town in the mid-west and starts a used book store, and well, we'll let you discover the rest... Place your mouse cursor on the photo for the name of the author. Left click the image for an enlargement. For more information about this author and her debut novel, go here, here, and here. For items to check out, try our catalog.

Do you have questions about the Roselle Public Library? Want advice about how to manage your account? How to find things? Want to know more about what we can offer you? Or worse, are you just lost in library jargon, and not even sure what to ask? Here's our forum for how to get the most from us, your local library. You can submit questions online to Dear Circ, or, as always, in person, or by phone (630-529-1641). Posted questions will be anonymous. Responses reflect the policies and programs of the Roselle Public Library, and may have no relevance to the policies, services, and procedures at any other library.
