Early mornings in summer are a busy time for savvy shoppers — it’s yard sale season. On July 7 and 8, the Friends and Foundation of the Arlington Public Library are joining the fun with their first Community Yard Sale. Library supporters can find a new treasure on July 7 and 8, or donate items to be included in the sale. The Yard Sale supports the new George W. Hawkes Downtown Library.

The Community Yard Sale will take place on the front lawn and parking lot of the Literacy House on July 7 and 8, from 7:30 a.m. to noon on both days. Arrive early for the best selection!

The Friends and Foundation will accept donations at all library locations. Household items like clothes, shoes, jewelry, electronics, games, jewelry, toys, dishes, art, books, and furniture are all welcome. If you need to arrange delivery of any large items, please call 817-459-6925. Library staff can provide you with a receipt for your donations.

“We have been brainstorming new ways to help our community get involved with the new Downtown Library,” says Ivonne Kieffer, the library’s Program Management & Community Engagement Administrator. “A monetary donation isn’t right for every family, but the Community Yard Sale gives Arlington a fun and different option to support the library.”

The Friends and Foundation put on book sales twice a year in support of the library. With the Yard Sale, they are expanding their offerings to other items. Click here for more details on the Community Yard Sale, or click here to find a location to bring donations.
