Book Sale Has Big Bargains
The semi-annual Friends of the Cobb County Public Library System book sale coincides with the second annual Wild West Fest at Jim Miller Park.
The Friends of the Cobb County Public Library System’s semi-annual book sale will be held Friday and Saturday, March 23 and March 24 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, March 25 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Jim R. Miller Park.
Donated items for the book sale include soft-cover and hard-back books, magazines, text books, DVD and VHS movies, and children’s books. Prices range from 10 cents to $5.
Last year, the book sales generated more than $80,000, which enabled the library staff to purchase new materials, including books and DVDs.
The March book sale attracts thousands of book-lovers to the event and is one of the two large semi-annual sales held yearly.
This year’s sale coincides with the Cobb Library Foundation’s second-annual Wild West Fest, which will be held on Saturday, March 24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Jim R. Miller Park. Tickets to the fest are for sale online and available at the door; entrance is free for children three and under.
All proceeds are designated to benefit the programs and services of the Cobb County Public Library System. The Friends of the Library are seeking book sale volunteers to pull off another successful year.
