The best-used book sale in the state is back, and best of all, the proceeds for the book sale will benefit Library programs and events. This week, February 17 – 19, enjoy a great selection of books to choose from, which includes many hardcover books under $3 and paperbacks priced at under $1. Please “Round-Up” your purchase at checkout as a bit of a bonus for the Library! Book Sale Hours: Thursday 8:30 to 5:00. Friday 9 to 5:00. Saturday 10 to 1:00. Saturday morning, items are 1/2 price. A $2 per bag sale starts at noon.
The Friends helps develop a public understanding of the Library. Friends provide funds that would not otherwise be available through membership dues, notable contributions, annual auctions, and used book sales. Proceeds benefit the Library – purchase furniture, equipment, books, and materials. Friends also provide the library staff with advanced training, education, and appreciation rewards for their fine effort to keep the Library a “State of the Art” facility and source of pride in Baxter County. In addition, friends donate their time and hard work to our various programs and services. Friends also encourage gifts of books and materials to the Library.
Since their founding in 1980, the Friends have given over $600,000.00.
