Want a great deal on some books? Check out the Friends of the Salina Public Library spring book sale Feb. 23 and 24.
The book sale will be in the Prescott Room of the library, 301 W. Elm. The Feb 23 sale will be open from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., and the Feb 24 sale will be from 1-3 p.m.
The sale will feature a variety of books that have been donated or withdrawn from the library’s collection. On Feb 24, books will be $5 a bag. The Friends of the Salina Public Library will supply the bags for shoppers to fill.
The sale benefits the Friends of the Salina Public Library, a volunteer, board-guided, membership organization that acts as a booster club for the library. Some of the group’s activities include providing volunteers for library events, purchasing T-shirts for Summer Reading and toys and games for the Imagination Station, and providing scholarships for teen library volunteers.
Friends members will be invited to an exclusive pre-sale the Friday evening before the public book sale. The evening includes refreshments and door prizes. Additionally, group members do not incur late fines on items checked out from the library and are able to enroll in CLASS courses the day before public registration opens each quarter.
