"We usually sell between $1,500 and $2,000 [in books], sometimes we go over $2,000, but never under $1,500," Friends president Karen Barnhart said.
She described Friends as the "fundraising arm" of the library and, according to their recent newsletter, the organization's last two book sales raised more than $3,700 combined.
"The [money] goes to our general fund and the money is used for buying books, media and programming for the library," Barnhart said.
Books will range in price from 50 cents to a dollar and will include children's books, paperbacks and hardbacks.
"The last hour of the book sale you can buy a recycle bag that we sell at the library, it's a $5 bag, and you can fill it with as many books as you can shove in it," Barnhart said, adding the bag can be reused at future library sales. "Typically, people put anywhere from 10 to 30 books in there."
There also will be benefits for Friends members who attend the sale.
"If you're a member of Friends of the Library you get to come in an hour early between 9 and 10 [a.m.] so you have the premium shopping time," Barnhart said. " ... We'd love to have people become more involved [with Friends of the Library], in fact we have opportunities for volunteerism where they can get gift certificates for books, so it's always a good thing to [get involved]."
The sale will last from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the general public and will open for Friends of the Library members at 9 a.m. Friends membership may be purchased at the door for $10 a year.
