The 24th annual Sue Lyon Memorial Book Sale will be held June 13-15 at The Federated Church in Sycamore.

Gently used adult and children’s books will be available; come early for best selection. Sale hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. Many genres of literature are available. On Thursday, hardbacks will cost $1 and paperbacks and children’s books will be 50 cents. Friday is buy one, get one free day, and Saturday is $5 Bag Day.

The used book sale was started in 1995 by Sue Lyon, a long-time member of The Federated Church, to raise money for the addition to the Sycamore Public Library. After Sue’s death in 2004 her family continued the effort in her memory. Currently, church members coordinate the sale as a fundraiser for the church’s general ministries, including the Harambee Percussion Ensemble, which is based at the church, and Scout Troop 16, which the church sponsors.

Federated Church is located at 612 W. State St. in Sycamore. Parking is available behind the building, off of Greeley Street and the building is handicapped accessible.
