Think of it as a literary version of Words with Friends. Friends of the Columbia County Libraries will hold its quarterly book sale Friday, August 3 through Monday, August 6 in the lobby of Columbia County Library in Evans.
“We’ll have hundreds of books – paperbacks, hardbacks, textbooks, fiction and nonfiction – that have been donated to the library,” says Debbie Burton, president of Friends of the Columbia County Libraries. “If people love books, it’s a great opportunity to pick them up for reasonable prices.”
The book sale will be held during regular library hours: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. August 3 and 4; 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. August 5; and 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. August 6. All proceeds will benefit library initiatives such as guest authors, children’s craft workshops, reading programs, character shows, magicians, prizes and computer classes.
“The library has a budget from the state, but it doesn’t cover a lot of the extras,” Burton says. “The library is such a great resource, and the book sale lets us do a lot of things for the library and the community.”
