The Radford Public Library is currently accepting donations of books, DVDs, CDs and audiobooks in
like-new condition to build up stock for upcoming book sales.
“These items – hardcover books, paperback books, music CDs in original cases, and DVDs in original
cases – are sold at Lamplighter book sales and generate funds for library programs and events,”
announced the library. “Shiny and new(ish) items are much appreciated!”
The library asks donors to please keep in mind they are not able to use VHS tapes, magazines, or text
book donations, and also asks donors to please limit donations to five boxes at a time.
Donors can call from the parking lot (540 731-3621) and library staff will come out to help load the boxes
“We’re grateful that so many folks have been cleaning out their homes and boxing up their good
conditioned books, DVDs, CDs and audiobooks to benefit the Lamplighter’s fundraising.”
The Lamplighters are a Friends of the Library citizen’s group formed in 1974 “to push for the Radford
Public Library building to be constructed,” according to the library’s wesbite. “Now, their donations,
volunteer work, and fundraising efforts provide funds for library events, Summer Reading Club, the
Radford Tree Lighting Ceremony, Radford Reads author talks, prizes, craft supplies, and more. You can
support the Lamplighters and the library by shopping at the library’s quarterly book sales, volunteering
your time, or becoming a member.”
