Sue Lyon Book Sale needs books

Published: Friday, March 14, 2014 5:30 a.m. CDT

Needed: Books, books, books.

The Sue Lyon Book Sale is looking for books. Your 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, and grandchildren, April and Brandon Lyon, continued her efforts in her memory.

Nineteen years have passed since that first book sale and the Lyons’ efforts have continued. Each year the book sale proceeds have been donated to local community nonprofit organizations. Last year the DeKalb County Hospice and the Garden Committee at the Sycamore History Museum benefited from this community book sale at Federated Church.

Books can be donated and delivered to Blackhawk Moving and Storage, 340 South Ave., Sycamore.
