Books gone wild – and cheap.

Pember book sale starts Friday morning

 

 

The annual Friends of the Pember Library Book Sale will be held July 8 and 9 at the Mary J. Tanner School.

The annual sale is a fundraiser for the library incorporating the Slate Valley Garden Club into ‘books, buns and bouquets.’

Patrons can stop in to stock up on gently used books from mysteries to romances and children’s books. Also available will be homemade goodies.

Asked just how many books she thinks they have on hand this time around librarian Ardyce Bresett said she could not be sure.

“I have no idea, but it’s more than we’ve ever had, which is saying something, there are thousands and more coming in every day,” she said. 

the Slate Valley Garden Club pitch in with the second year of making tasty baked good available for purchase.

“They ran out last year and had to go home and bake some more – it was very popular,” Bresett said. 

Completing the one-stop shopping trifecta, the Slate Valley Garden Club will have new plants available for purchase.

The school is located on Route 22 in Middle Granville, near the intersection with Route 22A.

The sale will be held Friday, July 8 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturday, July 9 from 9 am to 3 pm. 

Prices are $1 for hard cover books, 50 cents for large paperbacks, and 25 cents each or five for $1 for paperbacks. 

“This is a great chance to stock up on your summer reading material for a very reasonable price,” Friends member Mary Ann Niles said. 

The popular one dollar per bag sale will begin at 1 p.m. on Saturday only. Customers will be required to use bags provided by the Friends. 

Once again, we will have a large assortment of fiction, non-fiction, children’s, and young adult books as well as audio visual materials. 

The Friends welcome your donations, but ask that you do not bring text books, encyclopedias, Readers Digest condensed books, or any moldy or disintegrating books. Books may be dropped off at the Pember Library and Museum on West Main Street during regular business hours. 

For additional information, call the Pember Library at 642-2525.
