Waynesboro Public Library Book Sale gets Underway

The annual book sale to benefit Waynesboro Public Library is underway. It's the library's biggest fundraiser of the year.

Members say they raised more than $2,000 as of Wednesday night, and many more people have dropped by since then.

The first day was for friends of the library only, but from Thursday through the weekend it's open to the public.

Velma Ryan, chair of the book sale committee, says they have thousands of books, covering all kinds of genres. All the money collected will go toward new equipment and supporting children's reading programs.

"The book sale is for two reasons: one to make money for the Friends of the Library, which goes right back into the library, and the other is to have books in homes. We want people to come buy our books. They're much less than you can get anywhere else," said Ryan.

Most of the books are only a few dollars, but others are pricey collectors' items.

Thursday, the sale goes until 8 p.m. You can check out the sale Friday from noon to 6 p.m. and on Saturday - the last day of the sale - from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Cash and checks are accepted to purchase books.
