Posted July 16th, 2019 in Uncategorized
It’s that time of year again – Highlands Festival Book Sale. Our biggest book sale of the year, it runs from July 25 through Aug. 4 in the conference room at the main library, Abingdon, Virginia.
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.
“We’ve had some great donations this year, especially in our local/regional, vintage, Civil War, military and Christmas genres,” says Susan Brown, co-chairman of the book sale committee. “We’ll probably have some flash sales in some genres, so folks can follow the Washington County Public Library’s social media posts for updates.”
Prices range from 50 cents to $2 for most offerings. Higher value items are specially priced. Books are restocked daily. The Friends ask that visitors who can, bring their own reusable bags to help them become more eco-friendly. Book sale volunteers also ask that patrons hold donations of books and AV materials, so they can focus on the book sale set up. Donations are welcome again Monday, Aug. 12.
A preview sale for Friends of the Library only is Thursday, July 25 from 5-8 p.m. Scanning with devices or cell phones isnot permitted at the preview sale. Refreshments are served. Memberships are $10 and are available at the door.
