Success Won’t Wait volunteers recently donated yet another 1,000+ books to the Friends of the Hockessin Library. Combined with a donation just a few weeks ago, our total for 2014 now tops 6,000 books! Our largest donation to the group in our 12 year history is 8,000 books in one year — and we are confident that we will greatly exceed that in 2014!
What do the Friends of the Hockessin Library do with all those books? They hold the annual Friends of the Hockessin Library Used Book Sale, of course!
If you’re not familiar with the event, the Friends of the Hockessin Library Used Book Sale is held each January and raises much-needed funds for library programs. At the sale, you can buy almost any type of book — from children’s books, to cookbooks, to popular novels, and so much more. Each year approximately 70,000 books are available for purchase (many of them from Success Won’t Wait!).
The annual sale benefits the library and library programming, as well as necessary book and technology replenishment. For more information about the annual Used Book Sale, please visit Friends of the Hockessin Library.
Founded in 2002, Success Won’t Wait, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit literacy organization based in Wilmington, Delaware.
