            The University of Scranton’s Weinberg Memorial Library is seeking volunteers and accepting book and tag sale donations for its annual spring book and plant sale. The event is scheduled for Saturday, April 28, from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m., and Sunday, April 29, from noon until 4 p.m., in the fifth-floor Heritage Room of the Weinberg Memorial Library.

            Volunteers are needed for both days of the sale. Those interested in volunteering may contact Barbara Evans, circulation/access service clerk for the library, at 941-4078.

            The library is accepting all titles of used hardcover and paperback books, including children’s books, fiction and non-fiction, as well as compact discs, audiocassettes, records and tag sale items. All donations should be clean and free of odor. The library cannot accept flood-damaged donations. The library is also not accepting videos, encyclopedias or magazines. Donations may be placed in the boxes on the Monroe Avenue side of the library through Wednesday, April 25.

            All proceeds from the book and plant sale benefit the Friends of the Weinberg Memorial Library Endowment that supports library collections and services. Book prices begin at $1 in addition to specialty priced items. Flowering plants and tag sale items will also be sold.

            A special preview sale will be held on Friday, April 27, for Friends’ members and Schemel Forum members.
