Trade a book for a beer!
We are teaming up with the Laurelwood Pub to help support the Multnomah County Library. Trade a book for a beer or a children's book for a root beer all day!* Friends of the Library volunteers and staff will be on site from 5-8pm to sell memberships and collect book donations, but the offer is good all day. Friends of the Library will receive 20% of the pub's proceeds for the day.
*Limit one free beer per person.
Friends of the Library will be at the Rose City Book & Paper Fair, showcasing special and collectible items. This year's offerings will include a rich cache of books on the outdoors and traditional sport (archery, hunting, deer-stalking, angling, camping, guns), a sampling of Buckminster Fuller, slipcased collectible gift books, Anchor/Doubleday and other books with Edward Gorey covers, scarce selections from the library's historic John Wilson collection and more. Our booth is twice as large this year because we just have too many goodies to fit in the old space!
