Friends of the Mondovi Public Library

Book Sale

Usually the last Saturday in April or the first Saturday in May (2015 TBD)

The Friends of the Library sponsors an annual book sale at the Marten Center.  The sale generally takes place on the last Saturday in April or the first Saturday in May.  This year, the book sale will be held on Saturday, April 25th, 2015, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  Book donations and books removed from the library shelves are sold and the profits used for projects at the library.  Books are available for purchase throughout the year in the main entryway to the Library.


Each fall Younkers and Herbegers promote community non profits through a program that allows the nonprofits to sell coupon booklets for use in their stores.  Coupon booklets sell for five dollars, are filled with money saving coupons,  and allow the organizations  to keep ALL the profits from the sale of the booklets.  FOL has participated in this program in recent years.


A collection of  gift certificates from local and national vendors is made available for purchase by FRIENDS. .  Certificates for grocery stores,  gas stations,  sports stores,  restaurants,  department stores, and more are available for purchase at United Bank in Mondovi and through the library..

Gift certificates are the same as the certificates sold at the place of business and buy the same amount as the ones at the store.  You, as the purchaser,  receive full value for your purchase. Since “Friends” purchases these certificates at a slightly reduced percent,  “Friends” makes a profit.

Friends SCRIP is the FOL’s biggest fundraiser.  Scrip costs our patrons nothing and gives them the convenience of  shopping right in Mondovi for gift certificates from national and/or local stores.

“Friends” certificates are available at United Bank in Mondovi.  Order forms are in a holder on the wall next to the coffee pot.  Just fill out the form and take the form to one of the bank windows.  Order forms are also available at the library, and special orders may be left at the library desk.
