For the first time, the Friends of the Sioux City Public Library are hosting a Holiday Book Sale.
Anne Cowley, with the Friends of Sioux City Public Library, stopped by our studio to tell us more.
Shoppers can look forward to a selection of books including children’s picture books, general fiction, crafts & holiday, and audiobooks. Hardcover books and recordings will be available for $3, paperbacks for $2, and children’s picture books for $1.
“The Holiday Book Sale, although smaller than our annual sale in the spring, will be filled with a great selection of popular genres,” said Bea Houston, president of the Friends of the Sioux City Public Library. “The sale allows us to make use of our overflowing donations while also providing the community with timely, low-cost gift options.
Proceeds from the Holiday Book Sale go back to the Library and fund services and activities such as the Summer Reading Program.
The sale will be held Saturday, November 17 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, November 18 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Gleeson Room of the Aalfs Downtown Library, 529 Pierce Street.
