Library Book Sale

The Annual George Hail Library Book Sale will be held this Saturday, October 17 from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm. In addition to a wide selection of fiction and non-fiction books for the whole family, we will be selling DVDs, videos, audio books (both cassette and CD) and music (cassette, CD and even a few LPs). This year we will also be selling raffles tickets for two signed and matted prints and one signed poster by local children's book illustrator Mary Jane Begin. Most items will be half price from noon until 1:00 pm and from 1:00 until 2:00 prices will be $3.00/plastic grocery bag! Can't beat that.

I've always loved a used book sale, but this year's sale is especially near and dear to my heart. After the 2008 book sale our library director, Pat Redfearn, donated all the leftover books (some of which had seen several book sales) and started with a "clean slate". I have spent the past year sorting and organizing all the generous donations of books, movies, music and more that have come in over the course of this past year. It has been a very rewarding experience to witness the garage/storage area go from an empty room to an orderly, clean and well organized warehouse of great books, etc. I'm confident that there is something for absolutely everyone and that browsing through the books will be a delightful experience for all bookworms and bibliophiles. I will be at the book sale all day on Saturday and I hope to see you all there!
EDIT: Due to the expected rain, the book sale has been postponed. It will now be held on Sunday, October 25 from 9:00 - 2:00. It will, however, still be fabulous!
