Book sale benefits library programs

Knox County Public Library will once again host their summer book sale to benefit library programs this weekend.

The sale is from Friday, May 29, 2015 through Monday, June 1, at Bearden High School, 8352 Kingston Pike.

Thousands of beautiful used books will be available for sale, and proceeds from the sale benefit Summer Library Clubs and other programs at Knox County Public Library.

Revenues from volunteer-operated book sales combine with membership dues and donations to fund library enhancements that would not be available otherwise.

In 2015 Friends will contribute over $50,000 to the Knox County Public Library System, providing support for projects including Summer Library Club incentives, Zoomobile visits to branches, and sponsorship and volunteers for the Children’s Festival of Reading.
