Garage Sale Update

Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our neighbors and our volunteers and after monitoring daily recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Travis County Health Department and the Texas Department of Health the FOL has decided to CANCEL the upcoming FOL Garage Sale originally scheduled for March 28th

We regret any difficulty this may have caused but we’re sure you are aware of the situation with the global pandemic of CoViD-19 and the self isolation and social distancing precautions currently in effect.  It is our hope that the situation will resolve and “flatten the curve” quickly but we do not have an alternate date, so we must cancel.                                                              

If you have paid for a sale space you have two options:

  • Donate your space fee(s) to the FOL (since our only fundraiser of the year is now cancelled) to support your Community Library,
  • Request a full refund of your payment by next Friday March 27th.
    • Unless a request is made by that date we will assume you want to donate your rental fees, in which case we are most grateful.

Please let us know via email by Friday March 27th if you desire a refund.  Please send all refund requests to treasurer.fol.wblibrary@gmail.com for fastest service.

It is in the best interest of the Wells Branch community to take positive precautions rather than deal with potentially damaging consequences.

The FOL thanks you for your understanding during these trying conditions.  We look forward to greater times ahead and getting back to the normalcy of life in Wells Branch.

Wishing you health and safety in these trying times,

 

 

CANCELLED ** SAVE THE DATE: Another HUGE Community Garage Sale Saturday, March 28, 2020 ** CANCELLED

Save the date for the Spring Community Library Garage Sale in the library parking lot on Saturday, March 28th from 7am to Noon.  Book a space and we’ll send lots of customers your way!  You KEEP all your profits!

Let the FOL help you de-clutter this Spring! If you have things to donate, give those extra items to the FOL booth for our fundraiser.  Donations may be dropped off at the library on Thursday March 26th from Noon-6pm  and on Friday March 27th from Noon-8pm or you can rent a booth space and sell your own treasures.

Concessions will be available for purchase courtesy of the Friends of the Library.  Proceeds from concession sales and items sold in the FOL booth benefit library programs.  Limited spaces are still AVAILABLE!

Start saving items to either donate to the FOL or sell in your own booth when they become available!
