Saturday, October 28 End of an era booksale?
What may be the last big book sale at the Aspen Hill Library, 4407 Aspen Hill Road, Aspen Hill, Maryland, will be held on Saturday, October 28, from 10 am to 4 pm. Because our storage space has been substantially cut back, we must cut our stock drastically. Blow-out prices. Good homes needed for good books. We have over ten thousand books organized into over 40 categories. Sponsored by the Friends of the Aspen Hill Library. For more information, call (301) 871-1113 or e-mail Proceeds from the sale fund programs and equipment at the Aspen Hill Library.
Everyone is welcome!

The Aspen Hill Chapter of the Friends of the Library has been able to do many things for our library. Most recently as part of the refresh, we financed a new kitchen for the library staff area. We sponsor the Jazz Festival held at the library. We also assist the award-winning Aspen Hill Garden Club with the cost of the library landscaping. We recently started an author series, and have resumed publication of an interesting and fact-filled newsletter. A favorite events our Community Festival, this year was September 16. To see the “Grand Opening/50th Year Anniversary”, Book Sale, and Knitting Club,  click here

We provide funding for the library that supplements the County’s budget. Throughout the years, we have purchased computers, chairs, and bookcases when necessary. We have placed “plates” on various items showing they were bought by the Aspen Hill Chapter of the Friends of the Library. You can see just where your money goes!

Our funds support the children’s Summer Reading Program, “Born to Read” and Homework Helps, Aspen Hill’s after-school program. We also help with the special summer programs for children. All these important programs are well-attended, and all this is possible because of member support. Using membership dues and donations, plus the semi-annual Book Sales, we make an investment in the future of our community and our readers of all ages.

We welcome new members. Please contact us at
