The Friends of the Grovetown Library is calling readers to a book sale Saturday.
The sale will be from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at Liberty Park Community Center on Newmantown Road.
“We have about 4,000 books of all different kinds – hardback, paperback, fiction, nonfiction, cookbooks, novels, all kinds of good stuff,” said Grovetown City Councilman and event organizer Sonny McDowell.
Many of the books, especially novels, are in “like-new, bookshelf condition,” McDowell said.
All books, new and used, cost $1.
He’s still accepting book donations for the sale, and can arrange to pick up donations before noon Friday.
The sale also includes a yard sale. Anyone interested can pay $20 to set up a table at the yard sale.
Proceeds from the book sale will go to the Friends of the Grovetown Library for a feasibility study.
“It’s a group of people who are interested in building a library in Grovetown,” McDowell said. “The first step is a feasibility study to see whether the community at large would support a library.”
McDowell said he estimates such a study will cost $3,000 to $5,000.
For information, to make a donation or to reserve a yard-sale table, call McDowell at (706) 399-3777.
