Friends Sale Coordinator Larry Edwards said nearly 40,000 books, videos, CDs, DVDs and audio books are collected, sorted, boxed and hauled to storage.
Friday afternoon from 4 to 8 p.m. is Friends of the Library Preview Night, where Friends members will get the first opportunity to purchase the materials donated throughout the year. If you're not already a member, stop by the Estes Valley Library and buy a membership for only $10 for an individual or $20 for a family. Friends' volunteers will also sell memberships at the door of the sale.
On Saturday morning the Friends throw the doors open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, the doors are open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for "bag day," when you can fill a Safeway bag with books for only $5.
At the 2009 sale, the Friends sold more than $26,000 in books and other items and raised another $1,200 in memberships. Money earned from that sale helped fund the digitization of the Library's local history archive.
