Friends of the Milton Library today announced that their first book sale will take place August 10 at the Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub 9:00am to 2:00pm. The Olde Blind Dog is located at 12650 Crabapple Rd in the Crabapple section of Milton, GA.

The Friends group has been conducting a campaign to obtain donated books to support the new library to be built at the corner of Mayfield Road and Charlotte Drive in Crabapple. Proceeds from the sale of books will be used to enhance a range of library programs for the benefit of Milton residents.

"We seek new and gently used books of all kinds," said Matt Kunz, President of Friends of the Milton Library. Text books, children's books, fiction and coffee table books are particularly desirable. CDs, DVDs and audio books are also accepted. Persons making donations can receive a tax receipt if they wish.

Books can be left in specially marked bins at the following locations:

1. Milton City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway Suite 107, 678 252-2400

2. Milton Fire Station #43, 750 Hickory Flat Road, 770 777-6952

3. Shannondale Farm, 2395 Birmingham Road, 770 569-9555

4. Urban Farmhouse, 12680 Crabapple Road, 770 410-1112

The new library will be a branch of The Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System. The county is constructing eight new libraries and is expanding two libraries. Construction of the Milton library will begin in late 2013 with completion scheduled for late 2014. Details of the library plan can be found on the Friends of the Milton Library Facebook page:

The Friends of the Milton Library is a 501c3 charitable organization established to support the programs of the new library in Milton, GA. Proceeds from the sales of donated books and financial donations will be used to purchase new books and other materials for the library and to support various community efforts aimed at enhancing library services
