It’s all about recycling and the love of libraries.
The annual fall Friends of the Beaufort County Library book sale is this weekend – Friday, Nov. 1 through Sunday, Nov. 3 – offering thousands of used books with sale proceeds going to support the Scott Street, St. Helena and Lobeco libraries.
The books come from donations given to the Friends throughout the year by individuals wishing to see their books passed on to others.
The sale takes place in the Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park and runs from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Friday; 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Saturday; and 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday. A special opening for Friends of the Library members only takes place from 9 until 11 a.m. Individuals can join the organization at the gate for $25.
“Times may be challenging but individuals are still donating books to the Friends library sale so that we can pass the bargain of a good book along to others,” said Deb Chevas, co-chair of the organization’s book sale committee.
The sale will include not only books from a variety of topics but music, movies and children’s books as well. There is also a silent auction area as well as tables for “rare and collectibles.”
The city of Beaufort is a co-sponsor of the sale. For more information, go to FriendsoftheBeaufortLibrary.com.
