Book sale set for Ferdinand Library

FERDINAND — The Friends of the Ferdinand Library will hold its monthly book sale from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, in the library’s basement. Patrons should enter by the northside doors off of the Ferdinand Community Center parking lot.

A multitude of newly acquired books will be displayed including the PBS Great American Read, large-print, classics, westerns, adult fiction and nonfiction books.

A children’s area, complete with a large dollhouse full of age-appropriate books, has been created for children to sit and read.

Hardback books are $1, paperbacks and VHS tapes are 50 cents, DVDs are $2, and puzzles and games vary in price. All proceeds go toward the library for children’s, teens and adult programming. Books are donated by the library and community members. Donations should be marked as going to the Friends.

The Friends also will have a small table at the Ferdinand Farmers Market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the same day at the Monastery’s Event Center. The Friends also will be at the Ferdinand Folk Fest on Sept. 15, giving away books and sharing information about the organization.

Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Friends of the Ferdinand library can ask for a brochure at the sale or at the front desk.
