Do you like books? Are you fond of treasure hunts? What’s more fun than a treasure hunt among books? That’s what book lovers will find at the upcoming Friends of the Oakdale Library used book sale at the Gene Bianchi Community Center, 110 S. Second Ave., Oakdale on Tuesday, March 6 and Wednesday, March 7 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Thursday, March 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Admission is free.

“People come to book sales because the pursuit for books is like a treasure hunt,” said Sharon Arpoika, president of the Friends. “There will be thousands of books on hand for purchase at bargain prices. Lots of hardback and paperback books – mysteries, thrillers, and romance as well as non-fiction titles will be available. The books will be roughly sorted by genre or subject.”

The Friends group relies on memberships, book sale proceeds and donations to help enhance current and new programs at the Oakdale Library and to help with other library needs.

The Friends are now accepting donations of gently used books and DVDs for the sale. They are not accepting textbooks, encyclopedias, magazines or damaged books. Supporters may drop off materials at the Oakdale Library until Saturday, March 3. Bags or boxes should be marked “Friends Book Sale.”

Volunteers are also needed to transport materials, set up, take down and staff the sale. For information on the sale or to volunteer for this event, call Arpoika at 847-2048 or email The Friends of the Oakdale Library is an all-volunteer public service organization. Friends’ members will be available to answer any questions regarding joining and/or contributing to the Friends of the Oakdale Library.
