Used book sale is August 6

Book lovers and bargain hunters take note: The Douglas County Friends of the Library's annual used book sale is almost here!

The event is set for Thursday, August 6 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at a new location - the National Guard Armory, 311 Broadway in Alexandria.

A $3 bag sale will begin at 5 p.m.

"The annual used book sale is by far our biggest fundraising effort," said Priscilla Reineke, chairperson of this year's book sale. "We appreciate the hundreds of community residents who have donated books throughout the year and the large number of volunteers working behind the scenes to make this event a great success."

Partial matching funds will be awarded by Douglas County Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.
