50 cents? That’s right! I bought a John Grisham paperback that retails for $7.99 for 50 cents at the FRIENDS of Lakewood Library Book Sale.
Do you love to read? Do you love to save money? Do you love to support your library? If you do, let me tell you what is happening at our Lakewood Library located at 6300 Wildaire Rd SW, just off Gravelly Lake Dr SW across from Clover Park High School in the City of Lakewood.
In March and October of each year FRIENDS of Lakewood Library host a multi-day book sale in the library basement. Money raised supports the Lakewood Library and the Tillicum Library, both of which are in our City of Lakewood.
