The annual Greenbrier County Public Library Book Sale will take place on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 4 and 5, in the community room in the basement of the library.
The sale will feature more 15,000 books, according to Library Director Ann Farr. Adult fiction and nonfiction, children’s fiction, and audio/visual materials are featured in the sale. A plus for book lovers is that the sale coincides with the Lewisburg Literary Festival taking place downtown that same weekend.
The sale opens at 152 Robert W. McCormick Drive in downtown Lewisburg at noon Friday, Aug. 4, and runs until 6 p.m. On Saturday, Aug. 5, the sale starts at 9 a.m. and closes at 2 p.m. On Friday, books will be priced at $2 for hardcovers and $1 for paperbacks. Saturday shoppers can buy books for $5 a bag. (The bags are supplied by the library.) The book sale accepts credit cards and checks, as well as cash.
Shoppers are advised there is no elevator service from the first floor to the book sale in the library’s basement.
This annual fundraiser is sponsored by The Friends of the Greenbrier County Public Library. The group started in 1979 as an organization dedicated to promoting awareness of services provided by public libraries. Proceeds from the sale support library activities, services and programs.
