Spring Book Sale set for April

Your chance to load up on great reading options at a great price is just around the corner.

The Friends of the Beaufort Library will hold its annual Spring Book Sale from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 26 at the downtown Beaufort Branch Library located at 311 Scott Street in Beaufort.

The sale will include thousands of books, CDs, DVDs, audio books and more. All hardback books are $2.00 unless marked otherwise with regular paperbacks priced at $.50 and trade paperbacks at $1.50 each. The Library bookstore will also be open and offer its current inventory at the same prices.

“The Spring Book Sale is about more than just finding your next great book, though" said Neil Ames, FOL Book Sale Co-Chair. "It's about contributing to the improved literacy of children and adults across Northern Beaufort County. As with all our book sales, the proceeds will help fund programs for children, teens and adults at the three branches we service – downtown Beaufort, Lobeco and St. Helena Island. Programs we fund include the Summer Reading Programs for all age groups, special events like Books Sandwiched In, and of course, purchase and lease of reading materials. All are among the many materials and programs the FOL helps underwrite.”
