CORNING - There are still lots of good books available at the Friends of the Southeast Steuben County Library’s Fall Book Sale, according to Nancy Doutt, co-chair of the book sale.
The book sale, held at the East Corning Fire Hall, 11873 E. Corning Road, features thousands of gently used books, DVDs, CDs, puzzles and other bargains.
“Sales have been great,” Doutt said. “As of (Tuesday) night we have raised over $18,000 towards our goal of $25,000, so we will definitely make that number. Some good books are available - really every category still has some good books.”
The book sale will open from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. today, featuring a 40 percent discount. On Friday the sale is open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and the discount will increase to 50 percent, and some special tables will have a 70 percent discount.
Doutt said the final day of the sale, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday is the famous Bag & Book Sale where shoppers can bring their own bag or box to fill for a set price.
The sale only accepts cash and checks. Most items are from $1-$3. Proceeds benefit the Southeast Steuben County Library.
The spring book sale hopes to raise $25,000 for the Southeast Steuben County Library.
“All the proceeds benefit Southeast Steuben County Library programming,” Doutt said. “Not to fund operational expenses, but for children’s programing.”
Membership is available at the door, $5 for an individual and $10 for families, with all proceeds benefiting the library.
