August Book Sale. Gary Godefroy, book sale coordinator, asked for–and got–more volunteers than usual to unpack and display more than 500 boxes of books. Six CSF high school students volunteered, straightening and stocking the tables throughout the sale. At sale's end another large group packed up leftovers to go to Better World Books. The sale signed up 20 new members and netted $10,075 in sales and memberships, not a record, but close to it.
Davis Library Friends. The purpose of the Friends is to assist the Mary L. Stephens Branch t efforts to raise funds, plan for expansion of physical facilities, develop the library's book collection, encourage reading programs for children, and to promote thelibrary as a cultural center for the city of Davis.
Friends of the Davis Public Library have made substantial donations to the library, funding children's programs, special events at the library and the purchase of furniture and equipment. In addition, many print and eBooks are bought every year by the library with Friends donations.
Most of these funds are earned through the sale of donated books and magazines. The Friends have six book sales a year at the library as well as an ongoing Friends sale of books and magazines in the Reading Garden Alcove during library hours.
