Library Friends seek help to value donated doll


Courtesy of University Community Library Friends:

Hi Book Lovers and Supporters of the UC Branch Library,

Our first book sale is just over a month away. It will begin on Thursday, March 3 at 1 PM and continue on March 4 and 5 during regular library hours (remember the library is now open until 6:00 PM on Saturdays). It will be held, as always, in the community room at the library, 4155 Governor Drive, 92122.

We continue to receive an enormous number of donations each week. Sometimes we also are given an unusual item that we try to sell either at one of our sales or through other advertising.

Doll donated to UCLibraryFriendsThis time we have received a beautiful doll. We are looking for any information we can find about this doll so that we can properly value it. She is 19″ tall, on a stand with a music box that plays the song “Evergreen” from the movie “The Way We Were.” She has bisque hands, feet, and head, brown eyes, and beautiful clothing in perfect condition. She is reminiscent of Gorham dolls made in the 70’s and 80’s. If you have information about this doll or are interested in bidding on it, please respond by email to

Medical Book donated to UCLibraryFriendsWe also continue to have an amazing set of medical illustrations in 9 complete volumes by renowned medical illustrator, Dr. Frank Netter. This set of The CIBA Collection of Medical Illustrations is the 13th printing (1980) and is still in its shrink wrapped case. All books are individually wrapped and are in pristine condition, never having been opened. We have them advertised for $75 online, but will sell to Friends supporters for $50. Again, please respond by email to

Thanks for your support and don’t forget our daily sales, available whenever the library is open.
