Big New Signs Prompt Sept. 22 Grand Reopening Sale

The Gazebo Bookstore finally has some big bold signs, worthy of the support it generates for the Maureen B. Gauzza Public Library (MGL).

Although the bookstore, operated by the Friends of the Library, has lots of regular customers, at times it seems to be the best kept secret that we wish the community would share. Now everyone coming to the library can see that we are here.

Membership in the Friends isn’t required to shop in the store, but MGL benefits from both dues and sales. Both fund programs you and your children enjoy.

Did you know that that in June and July the MGL Friends spent nearly $6,000 for the summer reading and other youth programs?

As a way of celebrating new signage and terrific summer program participation, we are holding a Grand Reopening BOGO Sale on Saturday, Sept. 22.

• Friends members get private sale time from 10-11 a.m. You can join at the door.
• Individual dues are $10 for the calendar year; but during this event, membership will be extended through 2019.
• The sale opens to the public from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
• In addition, members and new members attending the sale will get a $2 Book Bucks Coupon that you can use immediately.

The bookstore has a wonderful selection of children’s books and most of those are typically $1 or less. Large paperbacks are typically $1.50, while small paperbacks are only 50 cents.

Due to an inability to staff the store continuously, sales are cash and on the honor system. However, for this particular sale we are trying to make credit card transactions a possibility.

Store inventory is generally in good to excellent condition. Most people who shop in the bookstore do end up making a purchase. Our goal is to increase the monthly sales volume so we can provide all of the programs your terrific librarians seek out, just for you!

If you have questions, you can contact me at We hope to see you on Sept. 22 and often afterwards.

By Bobbie Muir, President of the Friends
