Friends group to benefit from book sale

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

A special Friends-only preview of the sale is from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Friday.

Adult hardback and softbound books are $1; children’s books, young adult books and small paperbacks are 50 cents; and DVDs are $2. During the final two hours of the sale from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, volunteers will hand out bags to fill with books for $3 a bag.

Donations of gently used books, DVDs and CDs are welcome to help stock upcoming bimonthly sales and the ongoing sales at the Seymour, Crothersville and Medora libraries. Drop them off at any checkout desk during library hours.

Anyone interested in becoming a Friend of the Jackson County Public Library or renewing their present membership will find forms at the sale, at the checkout desks or online. Annual dues are $5 for individuals, $10 for family, $25 for donor and $50 for benefactor.

The next book sale will be July 13, a week later than usual due to the Fourth of July holiday week.
