It’s that time again—the Richmond Hill Friends of the Library will hold its bi-monthly book sale on Saturday, September 9 from 10-2 in the library. This one promises to be the best ever. According to Gloria Shearin who coordinates the book sales, FOL has more books to offer than at any of its previous sales.
Along with the usual hardback and paperback fiction ($1 and 50¢ each), FOL will offer many Nancy Drew (the yellow cover) and Hardy Boys series, Harry Potter (hardback and paperback), plus current and vintage sci-fi / fantasy books (some Game of Thrones series). The selection for this sale is so wide-ranging, it would be impossible to mention everything. Art, gardening, music and musicians, science and nature, biography, business and economics, westerns, and romance are only a few of the categories featured.
FOL will also offer sets at special discounted prices, even lower than FOL’s usual ones. Although some of these are volumes sold originally as a set, book room staff have packaged books by individual authors and others pertaining to the same subject. There is a set about the “lost continent” of Atlantis, several about Princess Diana, native Americans, styles of cooking, sci-fi authors, and crafts to name a few. Some of these sets are priced at 50¢.
There are lots of cookbooks, both vintage and modern. Now is a good time to search for volumes to complete a set of Southern Living annual recipes, to find a book featuring gluten free recipes or one focusing on a particular vegetable (think kale, for example), or to explore recipes from an unfamiliar culture (Thai, maybe).
The children’s and young adult books are so numerous they are almost spilling out of the small conference room allotted to them. Along with these—many in pristine condition—are new teaching aids and learning tools for toddlers. There are even some items that won’t be damaged by water.
The African American section is larger than usual, history/war/military books are overflowing shelves, and the humor section has both old favorites (Lewis Grizzard) and newer ones (Jeff Foxworthy). There is literally something for any reader.
Again for this sale, FOL will offer two raffles—Barnes and Noble $25 gift cards and a gift certificate from Flashback. Tickets are $1.
For additional information and to hear about new donations that will be featured, check FOL’s Facebook page (Richmond Hill Friends of the Library) or call the library at 912-756-3580. Don’t miss this sale. It’s a wonderful opportunity to get a head start on holiday shopping or to indulge yourself with a special book while also supporting a worthwhile cause. FOL is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to supporting the library in South Bryan County (Richmond Hill). Proceeds from the sale will be used to purchase best sellers and large print volumes and to fill other needs of the library.
