Basement book sale is Friday

FERDINAND — The Friends of the Ferdinand Library will host a second Saturday basement book sale from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 14. Those who attend are asked to enter the sale from the main floor of the library or through the north side doors off the Ferdinand Community Center parking lot.

This month’s sale will feature a variety of authors such as James Patterson, Sandra Brown, Patricia Cornwall, Janet Evanovich, Danielle Steel, Clive Cussler and many more. Sue Grafton novels A through W have been donated to the sale.  The majority of the newly-donated novels have been read just once.

Any and all books that have been previously donated to the Friends’ organization are available for the sale. The nonfiction genres include biographies, history, self-help, religion, spiritual, cookbooks, gardening, finance, art, music, home decor, parenting, wedding planning, and so forth. Boxes of fiction hardbacks and paperbacks also are for sale.

Children’s, tweens’ and young adult books are plentiful. A large donation of DVDs and puzzles are on display.  The special table of first editions, author-signed and otherwise outstanding books has new additions.

All hardback books are $1; paperbacks are $.50; DVDs are $1; children’s books, puzzles, games and special books are variously priced. Donations of gently-used books and puzzles are always welcomed and appreciated. All profits go towards adult, teen and children’s programming and activities at the library. The Friends recent donation to the library allowed the purchase of ten VOX children’s books.

Anyone interested in joining the Friends organization for $10 per year can pick up a membership pamphlet and information at the sale and the main library desk. Follow the “Friends of the Ferdinand Library” Facebook page for weekly information about library activities and sales.
