At the Adel Public Library we are looking towards summer, and anticipating all of our fun summer activities and programs. We are busy collecting donations for our Friends of the Library monthly Garage Sales which run during the last weekend of the month from May through October. Donations can be dropped off at the library during regular hours. Our first Garage Sale of the summer is Friday May 31st from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday June 1 10 a.m. to noon.

In addition to planning our garage sales, we are also preparing for the annual Friends of the Library Book Sale which always happens during Adel’s Sweet Corn Festival in August. We are eagerly sorting and organizing books, and will happily take any book donations.

All proceeds from the Garage Sales and Book Sale are used by the Friends of the Adel Public Library for special projects and programs at the library.
