The Annual Friends of the Watauga County Public Library Used Book Sale Returns to the High Country This Thursday

From this Thursday until this Saturday, the annual Friends of the Watauga County Public Library Used Book Sale will be taking place at the Boone Mall. All proceeds go towards benefitting the Friends of the Library, which helps to fund library programs throughout the year.

The Friends of the Library is an organization that was formed in 1974 to engage the public in the use and support of the public library. Along with this, it was also formed in order to help fundraise to continue programs that are not government-funded.

For over forty years, the Friends of the Library has worked tirelessly to keep the library as updated, functional and enjoyable as possible for those in the community. 

On Thursday, May 18, from 4-9 p.m., the book sale will be open to Friends members. You can become a member at the sale for $5 per person or $10 for a family.

On Friday, May 19, from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m., the book sale is open to everyone in the public. On Saturday. May 20, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., the book sale is open to the public.

Volunteers are needed for the every day for the Friends book sale. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jackie Cornette at the Western Watauga Branch Library by calling 828-297-5515.
