Book Sale - Save the Date!
The Friends of the Hall County Library will hold the Annual Used Book Sale on September 17 & 18 at the Gainesville Library.
Please donate your gently used books now at any Hall County Library Branch.
Volunteers are needed to sort items beginning in August and during the sale. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 770-532-3311 x134 to help.
Proceeds from The Friends’ Annual Book Sale support library activities including the Summer Reading Program and initiatives not funded by the library’s regular budget such as staff training and equipment purchases. This year, The Friends purchased a new camera and printer for Passport Services at the Blackshear Place Branch, and new chairs for the Youth Department at Spout Springs Branch.
Bible & Old Book Repair Day
RESTORING THE OLD TO MAKE IT LIKE NEW
The Hall County Library will host Bible and Old Book Repair Day on Thursday, July 14th, from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Headquarters Branch located at 127 Main Street, NW, Gainesville, GA.
This year’s book clinic will be offered by Mike Grimes of TLC Book Restoration of Jasper, GA. Mike has restored many thousands of books and Bibles over the past 40 years. He has found that rather than buying a new Bible, many people want to rebind their present Bible because it holds family history notes and has sentimental value. He has restored two of the early versions (1600s) of the King James Bible, and regularly restores books and Bibles from the 1800s.
Bring in your books and Bibles and Mike Grimes will examine them and provide options and estimates for restoration. Most repairs take two to three weeks.
For more information please call (770) 532-3311 ext. 116.
