Book sale offered this week

  • 0

The Friends of the Library is bringing back its book sales.

A four-day sale will be offered at Carroll Public Library this week.

The sales include books being removed from library shelves to make room for new ones, as well as donated items. All books are 25 cents.

This sale will include a bit of everything, Friends of the Library President Glenn Babb said, including kids’ and young adult books and adult nonfiction and fiction, including Christian fiction.

The sale at the library will be offered at the following times this week in the library meeting room: 1 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Face coverings are required.

“The Friends purchase items that have been pulled out of the library’s circulation and then offer them to the community at a discounted rate so the material can continue to be enjoyed,” Babb said.

Funds from the sale and other Friends of the Library initiatives help the organization financially support the library in a variety of ways, including with the Summer Reading Program, events at the library, the subscription to the BookPage and more. The Friends recently purchased a new iPad for the library’s use.
