Despite the current love of reading digitally, there are still hold outs. They’re the folks who love their fingers turning a page and the feel of paper.
In the years and decades ahead, there is a fear that bound books will be charming memories of a bygone era. For those valuing the beauty of binding, the Friends of the Dallas Library are offering a grand opportunity.
Starting Saturday, January 27, the FODL will be holding its two-day Winter Book Sale at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library. In addition to books, there will be DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks.
You don’t need to have a library card and who knows? You just might discover a new BFF for your book shelves. Plus, if winter weather wipes out electricity in your hood, you’ll have your new paper pal to keep you company.
BTW, if you become a FODPL, you’ll be able to attend a sneak preview on Friday, January 26. Memberships start at a measly $25.
Sales will support future library efforts including GED and ELL (English Language Learning) classes, preschool story times, the Mayor’s Summer Reading Challenge, the 2018 Dallas Book Festival, our Homeless Engagement Initiative and more.
