Sue Lyon Book Sale starts Thursday

Published: Friday, May 30, 2014 5:30 a.m. CDT

The annual Sue Lyon Book Sale will be held June 5 through 7 at Federated Church in Sycamore. 

Used books will be on sale from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, which is “bag day” – all items that fit in a bag cost $5.

The used book sale was started in 1995 by Sue Lyon to raise money for the addition to the Sycamore Public Library. After Sue’s death in 2004 her family continued her efforts in her memory. Each year the proceeds are donated to local community nonprofit organizations.

This year's proceeds will go toward a Scout Troop 16 camping scholarship and the ministries of Federated Church.

The church is located at 612 W. State St. in Sycamore. Parking is available behind the building. For more information, call the church office at 815-895-2706.
