Neither wind nor rain, … thank heavens there was no snow! 

The Friends of the Beaufort Library’s annual book sale went on this past weekend despite less than conducive weather conditions at Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park. The majority of the 900 boxes of books found new homes by the end of Sunday’s three-day sale.

The books are donated to the Friends group for re-sale, with proceeds going to support library programs in the Beaufort, Lobeco and St. Helena public libraries. The Friends also operate a small used book sales space throughout the year inside the Scott Street library. 

Next up for the Friends, the annual Books Sandwiched In program, which begins in January.
