Library director Lillie Huckaby presents a letter to library patrons.

Hello Wonderful Library Patrons,

This month includes National Friends of the Library week, October 17th – 23rd. I am very thankful for our Friends of the Library group. They are amazing. Think about all they do. There’s the always anticipated annual or semi-annual book sales. I’m grateful for the book sales which relocate many wonderful books to new owners. And if they didn’t have those book sales this library building would explode from all the incredible donations that you bring in. And then there’s the delicious Chocolate Celebrations, my mouth waters at just the thought. Both of those events take a great deal of work to make happen. Then there is the work behind the scenes such as going through all of the donations that come in and processing them – sometimes they need to be cleaned, sorted, boxed and taken to storage. This is ongoing throughout the year, year after year. Also, I call on the Friends for help for various tasks. Several Friends helped with the No Cost Meals programs last summer, they purchased freezers for that program also, and literally brought them to the library. Some Friends come to the library on a regular basis to volunteer doing shelving, or preparing crafts for story time, or whatever needs to be done. They meet monthly to keep business moving forward for those events and whatever they can do for the library even when times are tough. There will a proclamation from the Mayor on October 18th at 6:00 pm prior to City Council meeting, if you’re a Friends member come and be in a photo. If you’re not a Friends member but want to say thanks to them come and bear witness. Many of you reading this are members of the Friends so I say to you THANK YOU. Please join me in saying thank you to the Friends. There will be a large thank you card at the library that week for everyone to sign to say thanks.

Friends of the Library announce Fall Book Sale

The Friends of the Chickasha Public Library will be hosting a 2-week fall ‘Used Book Sale’. The sale begins Tues., Oct. 19, 2021 and extends through Sat., Oct. 30, 2021. There will be no sales on Sundays.

The hours for the ‘Used Book Sale’ will coincide with the ‘open hours’ of the Library: 

Mon.-Thurs. 9:30am – 7:00pm;
Fri. 9:30am – 6:00pm;
Sat., 10:00am-2:00pm.

The event will be held in the Library’s community meeting room, located at 527 Iowa Avenue, Chickasha, OK. 

Visitors will enjoy browsing through the selections of Children, Teen, and Adult fiction books, Reference Materials, non-fiction Books, DVDs and Book CDs.
For this sale, those purchasing materials will be asked to make a financial donation rather than having individual prices on all the items. 

The suggested donation is $1 per book except for children’s books.
Proceeds from the ‘Used Book Sale’ will be used to purchase new books and materials for the Library.

Also … Friends of the Chickasha Public Library memberships and financial donations may be made at any time at the Library or mailed to Friends of the Library, P.O. Box 265, Chickasha, OK  73023. Include your name, mailing address, phone number and email address, if available.
