SYCAMORE – Needed: Books, books, and more books.
The Sue Lyon Book Sale is looking for books. Used books, leftover books from garage sales, children’s books, or books you just never got around to reading can be donated now in anticipation of the book sale coming up in June.
In 1995, Sue Lyon started a used book sale to raise money for the addition to the Sycamore Public Library. After Sue died in 2004, her family, Jim and Sharon Lyon, and grandchildren April and Brandon Lyon continued her efforts in her memory. Each year, the book sale proceeds have been donated to local community nonprofit organizations. Last year, DeKalb County Hospice and the Garden Committee at the Sycamore History Museum benefited from this community book sale at Federated Church.
In preparation for the book sale, books you no longer want may be donated and delivered at Blackhawk Moving and Storage, 340 South Ave. in Sycamore.
