Spring Book Sale
Saturday & Sunday, April 6 & 7, 2019
The library received a large donation of books from the family of a member who passed away in November. These books covered a variety of topics including genealogy, history, writing, poetry, literature, biographies, novels, travel, cats, cookbooks, dieting, natural healing, self-help and reference books. We all have books that we no longer use so why not donate them to OGS? Whether you are downsizing, simplifying, or spring cleaning, you can donate your books to us.
Volunteers are needed to set out the majority of the books on Friday evening, April 5th, starting at 5:30 pm until done.  Saturday and Sunday we will need 3 people per shift to monitor the books and answer questions. We already have someone to handle money. Contact Dawn at library@oregongs.org.

OGS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization so your donation is tax deductible. You will need to complete a donation form in order to claim the deduction. Donations will be accepted beginning February 1st. Please bring your donation in a box or bag with your donation form. High value items must be itemized, regular books may be listed by number of softbacks, hardbacks, or category with a value.
