Brazoria County Library System schedules annual book sale

The Brazoria County Library System will hold its annual book sale Thursday evening, July 30 and all day Friday, July 31 and Saturday, August 1 at the Angleton Library, a branch of Brazoria County Library System, in Angleton.

Starting Thursday, July 30 from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., the public can find and buy books covering various topics for bargain prices. Most books sell for one dollar or less.

The sale Friday, July 31 starts at 9:00 a.m. and will continue until 6:00 p.m.; Saturday, August 1, the hours will be the same. The sale includes outdated items removed from library shelves over the past five months. Donated books from the public are also available. These materials are gathered and sold to the public to dispose of the property. There will be fiction, nonfiction, videos, audiocassette tapes and children’s books. Since space at the Angleton Library is limited, additional books are always added to the sale. Since the library has boxes and boxes of books to sell; the inventory is constantly changing. For this reason, people should come back and see what new books are available.

Money raised during the book sale is used by the County Library Board to benefit the branches. The money also helps the branches pay for performers during the summer reading program.

Volunteers are also needed to help with the book sale set-up that takes place Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. until noon.

The Angleton Library is located at 401 E. Cedar Street.

For more information or to volunteer, call Library Administration and ask for Lisa Gay.
