Book Cellar celebrates mothers

JASPER — The Book Cellar, located in the basement of the Library Annex, 1103 Main St., will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 18.

Mothers visiting the Book Cellar on May 18 may choose a discount from the fill-a-bag in the clearance room for $1 (regular price $3) or receive $1 credit toward a Main Book Cellar purchase. In addition, mothers will receive a free gift while supplies last.

The Book Cellar’s special collections section offers new books, first editions, signed books, rare and vintage books and collectibles, each individually priced.

Visitors to the clearance room can fill a paper grocery bag with book for $3 or purchase hardcovers for 50 cents and softcover for 25 cents.

The Book Cellar requests customers bring small bills when shopping as they are unable to make change for $20 on small purchases. Credit Cards can be used on purchases of $5 or more.

The Book Cellar is operated by volunteers of the  Friends of  the Jasper Public Library and proceeds benefit library programs and events. Members of the Friends of the Jasper Public Library for 2019 receive additional discounts in the Book Cellar.

Free books from the Book Cellar are available at the library in the section near the magazine area.

The Book Cellar is stocked from community donations. Smaller donations can be dropped off in the collection box located on the main floor of the library annex or inside the entrance to the main library when it is open.
