Basement book sale is Saturday

FERDINAND — The Friends of the Ferdinand Library will have their second Saturday basement book sale from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10.

Customers may enter the sales from the main floor of the Ferdinand Branch Library or from the north side doors off the Ferdinand Community Center parking lot.

This month’s theme is “Back-to-School.” Each student who comes to the sale will be able to choose a school supply from a special basket. There also will be a drawing for students to enter.

Several large donations of paperbacks, hardbacks and puzzles have been recently received and will be out for the sale. A large selection of Daniellec Steele books were donated. The new receptacle near the door to the basement for donated items has been full of books each week. Donations of gently-used books and puzzles are are always appreciated and welcomed.

The sale continues to make available books in the following genres: self-help, spiritual, true-life crime, Westerns, Classics, history, biographies, landscaping, cookbooks, young adult, popular authors, and specialty books which are first edition or signed by the author. Since school is back in session, additional history, science and literature books will be displayed.

All hardback books are $1; soft backs, 50 cents. Puzzles, children’s books and special books are variously priced. All proceeds go towards teen, children’s and adult programming, such as the upcoming beginning quilting classes with Becky Fuller and beginning dulcimer classes with Scott Conner.
