Representatives from the Friends of the Hockessin Library Larry Thurrell and Paul Winslow, a 10th grader at Delaware Military Academy, load up the van with another donation of books from Success Won’t Wait.

At Success Won’t Wait we have several ongoing projects, including working with the great folks from the Friends of the Hockessin Library. The Friends group holds an annual Used Book Sale each January which raises much-needed funds for library programs. Last week, we donated 800+ books for the sale, bringing our total books donated for the year (SO FAR) to almost 8,000 books!

If you’re not familiar with the Friends of the Hockessin Library’s annual Used Book Sale, this is the organization’s largest event of the year. At the sale, you can buy almost any type of book — from children’s books, to cookbooks, to popular novels.

Over 70,000 books will be available for purchase! T

he proceeds fund much-needed services, programs and (of course!) fantastic new books for the library.

Please make sure you visit the Friends of the Hockessin Library Used Book Sale in January 2014 to see all the fabulous books available and to support this great non-profit organization!
