Goodall Library is hosting a “donation based” book sale to raise funds to cover its added operating costs of occupying leased space while its building on Main Street is undergoing expansion.

The book sale is set for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday, May 17 and 18, at its temporary location at Center for Shopping, 1364 Main St.

Operating costs for the library have more than doubled since it moved to temporary quarters, according to a press release. “We pay monthly rent, electricity, gas bills, and have had some increased renter’s insurance costs with this move. The April ice, rain, and snowstorms added to the costs.”

“Library staff is pleased that this move has increased visibility for library services, and enjoyment of materials. … Many Sanford residents who hadn’t been to the 952 Main St. location are finding library services at 1364 Main St. helpful and enjoyable,” according to the press release.
