Half-price sale at Friends of the Library bookstore in Sylva

A half-price book sale will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19 and from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 20, at the Friends of the Jackson County Library used bookstore in Sylva.

Before the sale opens to the public, members of Friends of the Library will get first dibs on good deals during the “Members Only Half-Price Sale” from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18.

The bookstore will be closed to non-members, but anyone may join or renew at the door to get in to the pre-sale. Members get a great deal and first choice on the books in stock.

The Friends of the Library make a $10,000 quarterly donation to the library from proceeds at their used bookstore.

“Each donation, each sale and each volunteer help make this possible,” said Friends of the Library President Patricia Cowen.
