Exeter – What is a good book worth? More importantly, what is a book worth to you?
This weekend the Exeter Friends of the Library will let you decide what you are willing to pay for slightly used books at its first Memorial Day Book Faire. The book fair will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday, May 28 on the patio of the Exeter Library, located at 230 E. Chestnut St. at Exeter City Park. Used books will be for sale and attendees are only required to make a donation instead of paying a set price.
“You take the books you want and donate what you think they are worth, or the amount you want to give to support your library,” said Sandra Marlow, president of the Friends group.
In honor of its first ever
Memorial Day Book Faire, the Exeter Friends of the Library are also offering residents a chance at a basket of goodies for a good cause. Tickets went on sale May 10, for goody baskets now on display at the
Exeter Branch Library. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5 and are available at the library.
Proceeds from the event will go toward needs at the library and activities for the Tulare County Library System’s annual Summer Reading Program, held annually in June and July. For more information on the Exeter Friends of the Library, call Marlow at 559-355-9652.
Library hours are Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Thursdays and Fridays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information about the event or the library, call 559-592-5361 or stop by to visit.
