This week the Carnegie Public Library will hold its Cabin Fever Book Sale, which will support the general fund.
The sale will take place in the Library Meeting Room on Thursday from 12 to 6 p.m., Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The library staff encourages the community to remember that Saturday is Bargain Day.
After an abundance of donations, the library is bursting at the seams with books, movies, music and more. The sale features children’s books, fiction of all kinds, large print books, cookbooks, history, and “how-to” books, in addition to VHS tapes, DVDs, and music CDs.
“Some of the books come from a surplus, but we were surprised with the amount of donations we received this year,” Carnegie Public Library Director Sarah Nichols said during an interview Tuesday. “We have boxes and boxes of books available at the sale. A large variety of genres will be available guaranteeing a little of something for the whole family.”
All items are $1 or less, with Saturday featuring the $1 a bag sale. This community favorite allows someone to fill a bag for $1 with an assortment of books. The prices are cheaper than a download, said Nichols. Money made from the sale will be added to the library’s general fund which is used for general operations, materials, and programming.
“If you are looking to try a few novels or expand a child’s library, this is the sale for you,” Nichols said. “The prices are amazing. We will be here rain, snow or shine and we hope the community comes out to take advantage of the this opportunity.”
