Non-profit Used Bookstore Comes to Gaithersburg

I’m looking forward to visiting the Friends of the Library’s third used bookstore. The new store, at the intersection of Quince Orchard Road and Clopper Road in Gaithersburg, will offer not only used books but videos, educational games and other reading materials. The store also will accept tax-deductible donations of books. Proceeds are used to fund library enhancements such as children’s educational programs, cultural celebrations and new library technology.

The store opens on April 15 and will celebrate its grand opening on Saturday, May 2, 10:00-2:00. Festivities will include live entertainment, giveaways and children’s arts and crafts.

As we all struggle with a sagging economy, it’s nice to know we have low-cost options, especially for entertaining and educating our kids. If this store isn’t convenient for you, visit the non-profit organization’s other stores in Wheaton and Rockville.
