The 2015 edition of the Friends of the El Cerrito Library fall sale was a resounding success, resulting in higher proceeds than were raised in 2014. In fact, close to $4000.00 will be available to the library for new books, children’s programs and other activities!
Bargain hunters of all ages included teachers and parents wanting to supplement classroom supplies, a woman purchasing children’s books to give to Halloween trick or treaters, and many literature, music and movie enthusiasts.
