The Friends of the Rochester Hills Public Library’s Used Book and Media Sale

Shop for unique gifts at the Friends of the Rochester Hills Public Library Quality Used Book Sale. It’ll fill the first floor hallway of the library (500 Olde Town, in downtown Rochester) December 12-14.

Some books are new. Every year the Friends receive donations that are new or like-new; some still in the original shrink-wrap. These are saved for the Quality sale so folks have the opportunity to buy special gifts at very reasonable prices. As well as books, there will be DVDs, CDs, toys, games and miscellaneous items.

  • Thursday, December 12, 3:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
  • Friday, December 13, 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, December 14, 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

    As supportive as I am of public libraries, I’m puzzled by the misleading photo of the library’s bookshelves. Take a look at it. Somebody has doctored the shelves to lend a false impression of the Friends of the Library collection. Why would anybody do that? I like the idea of raising funds to cover library needs through sale of used books. But doctoring photos as the Friends have done in this case makes one suspicious about the fundraisers. How do this explain this?
