Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries Invite Public To Giant Bargain Book Sale

This weekend’s Giant Book Sale by Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries will be readers’ last chance to load up on bargain books this year. 

“We have many like-new hardcover books that are selling for very reasonable prices, many as low as one dollar.  People who like to collect books will find nice hardcover books that will last.  People who like to read can stock up on a wide variety of books without spending a lot.  People who like to listen will also find a good selection of audiobooks,” said Ruth Dupuis, President of Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries.  The Friends’ volunteer group has been hard at work setting up thousands of books, audiobooks, and more for their biggest fundraiser. 

The sale is a popular event for parents and educators who pounce on the kids’ and young adult books priced at 25 cents each.  The semi-annual event provides a great value on books while also providing great value to local libraries.  “Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries fund important programs that we can’t otherwise provide through public funds.  They dedicate their time and efforts to raise over $30,000 per year to enrich our libraries.  By purchasing books, shoppers are helping support local libraries,” said Kyle P. Cox, Executive Director for Mid-Columbia Libraries.
