piece puzzles will be included as will hundreds of DVDs at only 50 cents each.
Buyers will find a wide variety of books besides fiction for adults, teens, and
children. Topics include history, politics, biography, home and garden, hobby,
cookbooks, homeschooling, religion, true crime, Christian fiction, romance,
Western, science fiction, and fantasy to name just a few. A bonus at the sale will be
the inclusion of a variety of food trucks on site. The food truck schedule will be
announced soon, the organization said.
Cook encourages everyone to come browse and buy because your support of the
sale ultimately supports the library and all the services it offers. “This will be our
biggest book sale ever,” she added, “and you don’t want to miss it!”
The fairgrounds address is 501 W. North Drive, and the sale will run from 9 a.m.-6
