Book sales this week

The semi-annual Friends of the Library Bag Sale will be held the first week of June. The Bag Sale will take place on Saturday, June 8, at the public library from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The shelves are brimming with great items in all areas. Customers are encouraged to come early as there are usually long lines. The children's section has well stocked shelves to help those kiddos keep reading during the summer. The History and Wyoming and the West sections also have great selections as do the mysteries and novels. The religion section is exceptionally full. Everything including DVDs, games, puzzles and music is included in the sale. A grocery style bag sells for only $3 while a larger reusable bag is only $5. Each bag can hold dozens of books for the thrifty shopper. If you plan to use a larger bag, please bring that with you.

If lines and crowds are difficult for you, there are two other options. There will be an Early Bird Sale on Thursday, June 6  from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tickets for this sale are $20 and are available at the library or at the door until they are sold out. The Second Chance Sale will be held on Friday, June 7 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tickets for this event are $10. Only 55 tickets are available for each of these events. Books will sell at these two early sales for regular prices with no item selling for more than $2.

There is truly something for every reader at these sales. The community has generously donated thousands of books and items for these sales. All proceeds promote literacy within the community.
