Bonner Friends of Library Book Sale to be Aug. 14-16

Book lovers will want to mark Aug. 14, 15 and 16 as the date of the Bonner Friends of the Library Book Sale.

Hours are 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. on Thursday and 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The library is at 201 N. Nettleton Ave., Bonner Springs.

A large selection of fiction and nonfiction as well as children’s books will be sold for no more than $1 and many older but still in good shape choices for only 25 cents.

There is an interesting selection of large print volumes and you may also find a book autographed by the author. Along with bargain prices there will be different specials throughout the days of the sale, such as a bag of romance fiction or a bag of paperbacks for $1.

Fiction is arranged alphabetically by author and nonfiction in a variety of categories is identified by signage. Recent donations will be in a separate area and many are like new and would make good gifts.

The sale will be held in the lower level storm shelter of the library and can be accessed from the parking lot in the rear of the building.

Profits from the sale are used to enhance the library and its programs, most recently contributing to the successful summer reading program.
