Redwood City, CA - January 13, 2004 - The Friends of the Redwood City Public Library have been busily restocking their supplies for a huge book sale that takes place from 12 noon to 4 p.m. on Friday, January 30 and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, January 31. The two-day event will be held in the community room of the Redwood City Public Library main library, located at 1044 Middlefield Road.

A recent flood of high quality donations has prompted the Friends to offer four book sales throughout the year. Thousands of books for sale include high quality gardening books --great for wintertime garden planning -- children’s books in excellent condition, best sellers, and mysteries. Proceeds from the sale will be used to buy books and other library materials, and to sponsor the Summer Reading Club for children and special programs for adults.

The Friends of the Library also invites adults to their upcoming program, “Winter Holiday Traditions,” with facilitator Warren Dale on Tuesday, January 20 at 7:30 p.m. Come prepared to share your meaningful holiday traditions in this community exchange of ideas.
