Friends having big book sale
Posted July 31st, 2018 in Uncategorized
The Friends of the Washington County Public Library are holding their annual Virginia Highlands Book Sale through Sunday, Aug. 12.
The FOL book sale volunteers have worked hard to select the very best books and AV materials for this sale.
“We’ve had a perfect storm this year to make our summer book sale really special: a steady supply of exceptional donations, a growing number of dedicated volunteers who sort and prep the books and AV materials and stuffed full storage units. We didn’t have our March sale this year so we’ll have a generous supply to keep this sale stocked for the full two weeks with high quality merchandise at bargain prices,” says Susan Brown, co-chairman of the book sale committee.
Thousands of books, including popular fiction, nonfiction, mysteries, romance, reference, cooking, gardening, classics, inspirational as well as books for children of all ages are available for bargain prices in the conference room of the main library in Abingdon, Virginia. In addition, the collector’s section has vintage and out-of-print books. A selection of DVDs, audiobooks and CDs is available.
Prices range from 50 cents to $2 for most offerings. Higher value items are specially priced. New books are brought to the sale daily. There will be flash sales during the second week of the sale.
A preview sale for Friends of the Library only is Sunday, July 29 from 5-8 p.m. Scanning devices are not permitted at the preview sale. Refreshments are served. Door prizes are given away and a silent auction is held. Memberships are $10 and are available at the door.
Monday through Thursday hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday hours are 1-5 p.m. The popular bag sale is held Sunday, Aug. 12 when a bag of books is $5.
MasterCard, Visa and Discovery are accepted.
All proceeds of this sale support programs and services of the Washington County Public Library System.
