It is the time of the year when the Friends of the Ronceverte Public Library are loading books up to take to the Greenbrier Valley Mall in Fairlea for their 29th Annual Book Sale.
Friends members Kathleen Williamson and Sally Parker are stacking books at the Clifford Memorial Armory Community Center where they will be stored until Thursday, Oct. 10 when they will be moved by a U-Haul to the Mall.
Each year the Friends gather books via public donations beginning in November right up until Oct. 1. The books are sorted to find the best quality, most interesting genre that they can offer the public. This year’s selection of hardback non-fiction, fiction, paperback, trade paperback are some of the best reads as well as best buys the public will have access to purchase.
Our sale starts at 9 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 11, and runs until 9 p.m. that night only to start again on Saturday, Oct. 12 at 9 a.m. On Saturday the sale will take a break at 2:45 p.m. while the staff straightens everything up for the last hour of the sale (3-4 p.m.) when all the books that a person can fit into a bag (we will provide the bag) will be $1.
