Carrboro Branch Library will host the Friends of Carrboro Library Book Sale Dec. 6 and 7 in the cafeteria at McDougle Middle School.
Linda Browner is in charge of book sales and says this is the group’s biggest fundraiser of the year. She says a lot of the books are brand new and in good condition.
“The Chapel Hill News donated to us 92 brand new books that were sent to them for review and these are the top authors,” she says. “I mean this stuff is really excellent and we’re so happy to get the donations.”
Browner says the money raised from the book sale benefits numerous scholarships, librarian budgets, children’s programs and bonuses for the staff. She says the sale is a great holiday gift option.
“It’s a great opportunity to get some gifts if you’re a person that spends time in the car and wants to listen to a book on a tape or CD,” she says.
A large selection of fiction and nonfiction books, audio books, CDs, DVDs, children’s books and coffee table books will be available for purchase.
The sale will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Dec. 6 and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Dec. 7. Browner is co-chairing the event along with Dolly Triantafillou.
