Bookstore raises thousands for Milwaukie library in few months
Friends of Ledding Library Bookstore reopened on Oct. 15 and has already raised about $2,000 in support of Milwaukie's public library.
Bookstore volunteers hope that the store will get even busier each day as more people discover it's open. The bookstore opened in the new Ledding Library building when that building opened in January 2020, but that was opening was short-lived due to pandemic shutdowns in March 2020.
New items and merchandise are replenished almost daily using donations from the community. The store has books for both children and adults, DVDs and CDs (music and books on tape). Milwaukie and library-themed merchandise is available, such as book bags, T-shirts, mugs and socks.
