A Rhode Island Library Day special event hosted by The Foster Public Library


Saturday, April 13 at 1 pm, Foster Public Library, 184 Howard Hill Road, Foster, RI 02825


Do you have books you treasure in your home?  Are you curious about what your book might be worth? Mr. Rickman will offer his thoughts on book values drawing on his years of experience as a long-time book dealer in Providence and former host of “Bestsellers” on Rhode Island Public Television.


In an Antiques Roadshow-type format, Mr. Rickman will cover what makes a book valuable, what type of books have the highest retail value, and will offer complimentary estimates for three for your books’ market value.


Foster Public Library is celebrating Rhode Island Library day with guest speaker, Ray Rickman.  


In addition, both libraries in Foster, Foster Public and Tyler Free Library,  will be inviting library visitors to sign up for free library cards and visit the Library Book Sale.


There will be door prizes, free reading booklets and bookmarks for children, refreshments, and a drop-in craft table.  Join us in celebrating the rich resources of your local public library:  Libraries = Strong Communities.


Mr. Rickman is the founder of The Rickman Group, a Providence-based management consultant firm, offering advice to companies and nonprofits to improve their strategic, financial and operational position and performance.


A former state representative, Rickman lectures throughout Rhode Island and beyond on a broad range of historical and cultural topics pertaining to American literature and African American history. Rickman is also the executive director of Stages of Freedom, a nonprofit that promotes African American culture.”
