The annual book sale of the Greenbrier County Public Library, scheduled this year for Aug. 3 and 4, is a bounty for bargain hunters.
The lower level of the library will overflow with used books. That is a significant statement, because the finished area is so large that it is rented for receptions and other occasions. Patrons have been so generous in emptying their bookshelves that the library cannot accept any more book donations for this year’s sale.
The sale features adult fiction and nonfiction, children’s fiction, and audio/visual materials. The event, at 152 Robert W. McCormick Drive in downtown Lewisburg, is scheduled in conjunction with the Lewisburg Literary Festival.
The sale opens at noon Friday, Aug. 3, and runs until 6 p.m. The sale is open 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4. On Friday, books will be priced at $2 for hardcovers and $1 for paperbacks. Saturday shoppers can buy books for $4 a bag. (The bags are supplied by the library.) The book sale now accepts credit cards.
The Book Bazaar is an annual fundraiser 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.
