Tips for tidying up during spring cleaning


Tonawanda News — Peggy Waite, director of the North Tonawanda Library, said most of the books they receive are then re-sold by the Friends of the Library group at their annual book sale. Funds from the sale go toward programming throughout the year.

This year's sale is May 1 to 3, and Waite asked that no books be donated to the library between April 25 and May 7 as they prepare for and clean up from the sale.

If you're interested in donating books, call your local library to find out what they need and can accept.

The American Association of University Women is also currently accepting book donations for its annual book sale May 29 through June 3. You can donate books between the hours of 10 and 11:30 a.m. at the Kensington-Bailey Neighborhood Services Building at 995 Kensington Ave., Buffalo. After April 18, donations can be made at the sale site at the Sheridan Plaza, Sheridan Avenue and Eggert Road in the Town of Tonawanda. 


Ultimately, Shaner said, you don't have to clean up and organize your entire house before donating unused items to charity. If you fill up a bag or a box, go ahead and take it to Goodwill or any another organization that can use it.

"You don't have to wait until you're done because sometimes that just creates a bigger pile," she said.
