Summer, the best time for reading (and supporting your Library)!

A message from our Friends (of the Library, that is)!

Good reads come in small packages!

This month’s Friends of the Pima County Public Library book sale features tiny books offering big entertainment. Come to the Book Barn to check out the feature table for books that are smaller than a bread box . . . ooops smaller than a paperback . . .  but full of fun, facts, wit, and great stories. Get one for each of your biggest best friends. It’s a great, easy-to-mail gift that they are sure to love!

When you visit the Friends’ Book Sale don’t forget the smallest readers. Our kids’ section has board books and hundreds of bright and colorful children’s books.

Remember! It’s time for the Library’s Summer Reading program. All summer, our friends at the Library are offering family-friendly programs that help kids beat the heat! Help the young reader in your life find the perfect book for summer reading. Your Friends’ Book Sale purchases make the Summer Reading programs available to all kids in our community.

What’s the best book ever? Great books offer something for everyone! Participate in the Library and PBS’s Great American Read and vote for your favorite! Be sure to search the Friends fiction section to find your next book recommendation.
