Pember book sale this weekend

P iles of books are stacked up, staff are busy and garden club members are gathering their ingredients as “Books, Buns and Bouquets” finally comes to the Pember Library this Saturday, July 13.

The annual summer book sale, which usually sees a large turnout, will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. A wide variety of gently used hardcover books, paperbacks, children’s books and more will be on sale. There will also be baked goods and plants for sale, said Edie Riker, secretary of the Friends of the Library and Robyn Lipschutz, co-president of the Slate Valley Garden Club.

“It’s been wonderful in the past, and we expect it to be just as good if not better this year,” Lipschutz said. “A lot of people work really hard to make this happen.”  She also said the garden club ladies’ goodies are worth a taste.

Riker said the event is the library’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and the money raised goes to buying new equipment and special books such as eBooks and those with large type.

Many of the books will cost only a quarter, and a special $1 per bag price will be from 2 to 3 p.m. on Saturday. Bags will be provided. Adult book prices range from 10 cents to a dollar, children’s hardcover books are 25 cents or 5 for $1, and softcover books are 10 cents each. Audio books, videos, tapes, DVDs and more are 50 cents.

The Slate Valley Garden Club will offer a variety of plants, including perennials, shrubs, herbs and houseplants.

This is a change of venue from previous years at the Mary J. Tanner School. For more information contact the library at 518-642-2525. The Pember Library and Museum is located at 33 West Main St. in Granville.
