Library book sale returns!

After a long hia­tus, an annu­al library tra­di­tion is being revived — the Friends of the Library book sale. This much-antic­i­pat­ed pub­lic event was aban­doned dur­ing the COVID pan­dem­ic and has lain dor­mant since. The Friends group is cur­rent­ly reor­ga­niz­ing, and the first order of busi­ness is bring­ing back the annu­al book sale.

The sale will take place on Friday, Nov. 24, and Saturday, Nov. 25, from 10 to 4 each day. The sale will fea­ture books, mag­a­zines, DVDs, CDs, and VHS tapes for $3 per bag. Small shop­ping bags will be pro­vid­ed. No oth­er bags may be brought in. 

This year, the sale will also include board games and video game cartridges. 

Donations needed

At this time, the library is solic­it­ing dona­tions from the pub­lic for the book sale. The fol­low­ing items are needed:

  • Gently used books of all genres
  • Magazines in good condition
  • Movies and music on DVD, CD, and VHS tape
  • Video game cartridges
  • Board games in good con­di­tion with all pieces

All items will be accept­ed at the library dur­ing reg­u­lar busi­ness hours through Sunday, Nov. 19. The library is locat­ed at 370 South Burns Ave. and is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday. 

The book sale is an impor­tant source of fund­ing for our pub­lic library. All pro­ceeds go toward sup­port­ing the library’s programs.

The Friends of the Clark County Public Library is an aux­il­iary group sep­a­rate and dis­tinct from the library board and admin­is­tra­tion. It works with those enti­ties to raise mon­ey and pub­lic aware­ness to sup­port the ser­vices and pro­grams of the library, and to be advo­cates for our local pub­lic library.
