Basement book sale 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, Sept. 14.

This month’s featured books are cookbooks, including cookbooks for vegetarians, healthy eating, chef-written, food for toddlers, desserts, international cuisine, Italian, diet cookbooks, community and church cookbooks, quick meals, farm-to-table, general cookbooks, and even a few novels that contain recipes.

The Friends have also added art, music and photography books to the shelves. Vietnam War, Civil War and World War II books have been added to the history shelves. Newly donated children’s, young adult, adult fiction and nonfiction books are displayed on tables along with newly donated puzzles. Additions also have been made to the table of special books — books signed by authors, first editions and other nice books.

Donations of gently used books and puzzles are always appreciated and welcomed. The new receptacle near the basement door for donated items has been full of books each week.

All hardback books are $1; paperbacks, 50 cents. Puzzles, children’s books and special books are variously priced. All proceeds go toward teen, children’s and adult programming. The ongoing dulcimer classes with Scott Conner and the quilting classes with Becky Fuller are supported by funding from the Friends.

Friends’ membership pamphlets and information can be found at the sale and main library desk.
