Friends’ book sale planned at library


The Friends of the Jackson County Public Library used book sale is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday in the meeting room of the Seymour Library, 303 W. Second St.

A special Friends-only preview of the sale is from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Friday and from 9:30 to 10 a.m Saturday. During the final hour of the sale, the “everything-a-bag-can-hold-for-$3” is in effect.

Regular prices are adult hardback and softbound books for $1, children, young adult books and paperbacks for 50 cents and DVDs for $2.

Donations of gently used books, movies and music are welcome to help stock upcoming bi-monthly sales and the ongoing sales at Seymour, Crothersville and Medora. They may be dropped off at any checkout desk during library hours.

Anyone interested in becoming a Friend (or renewing membership) will find forms at the sale, at the checkout desk or online. Annual dues are $5 for individuals, $10 for family, $25 for donor and $50 for benefactor.

Friends also has partnered with the Seymour Area Farmers Market with the Buck-a-Book wagon. A small selection of books is available during regular market hours through October. Hours are Saturdays 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Wednesdays 4 to 6 p.m. in the Walnut Street parking lot.

The next bi-monthly sale is Oct. 8.
