The sales are organized and hosted by the Friends of the Library. Friends of the Library is a nonprofit group that helps with events, donations and other aspects of the library. “The library system is like a tree with branches,” says Pat Lovell, Friends of the Library President. “The library offers all these branches that spark creativity and expand the mind. The Friends group is just another growing branch to help support everything else.”
