Do you love discovering unique finds and being surprised by hidden gems? If you haven’t been to a Friends of the Library book sale yet, you are missing out!

The next public sales are Saturday, Oct. 28 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 29 from 1-3 p.m. Sales are held in the Library’s Jones Meeting Center.

At the Sunday sale, you can bring and fill any size bag for only $5! Bags are also provided at the sale for those who need them.

The sale features thousands of donated items. Friends Book Sale Committee Chair Kathy Hall says, “Our bi-annual book sale is a great place to find an unexpected treasure or just your next great read. We always have a huge variety of adult and children’s books, DVDs, CDs, and even puzzles.”

Kathy estimates that this year’s sale, which is stocked from used book donations throughout the year, has over 10,000 items. “Book donations from the community have been through the roof this year,” she says, “so this sale in particular will have an incredible selection.”

Along with finding hidden treasures, the sale offers you a chance to support your Library! All of the sale proceeds go to furthering the Library’s work.

Friends sale prices are unbeatable. Paperbacks cost $1 and hardbacks cost $3; children’s picture books are 2 for $1 and children’s chapter books are $1 each. CDs are 4 for $1 and DVDs are $1 each. People can also purchase a library tote bag full of books for $25.

In addition to the public Saturday and Sunday sales, Friends of the Library members are invited to a preview sale on Friday, Oct. 27 from 5:30-7 p.m.

The Friends of the Johnson City Public Library is a group of volunteers dedicated to the welfare and promotion of the Library. Sign up to become a Friends member online or in person at any of the book sales.
