Waynesville library book sale is July 23-25
The Haywood County Friends of the Library Book Sale will be held July 23-25 at the Waynesville branch of the library.
This will be the biggest book sale yet as a result of all the books donated this year. Many patrons have donated books that are in excellent condition from their private libraries. Because of the volume of books, book sale volunteers have been able to subdivide books into new categories such as inspirational fiction, fiction bestsellers, Pulitzer Prize winners and nominees. Nonfiction categories include military history, Civil War history, how-to books, biographies, sports — especially golf — antiques and collectibles. This year there is also a good collection of foreign language books.
Paperbacks have been subdivided and separated so that very recent publications are easily identified. Pricing for paperbacks varies from $2, $1 and 50 cents.
The children’s book selection runs the gamut from books to read to infants to books appropriate for young adults. Home school families will appreciate the books for young adults and teens. And there are books for the home school teachers dealing with parent-teacher issues.
This year there is a sizable collection of vinyls, including some 78s. The records have been reviewed and rated as to their quality. There are audio books and DVDs. As always there are puzzles. Get there early as the puzzles go quickly.
Book sale hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 23; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday July 24; and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday July 25. 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Bring your own bags if possible. Parking is limited at the library but space is available at the Methodist Church lot across Boyd Avenue.
If you would like to volunteer to help with the sale contact Sandy at 828.627.2370. For any other questions contact the library at 828.452.5169.
