The Friends of the Library is having its fundraising event, a Book and Bake Sale, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at the Phenix City-Russell County Library, 1501 17th Ave.
Unless otherwise marked, most books are $1 for hardcover and 50 cents for softcover; children’s books are 50 cents for hardcover and 25 cents for softcover. DVDs, VHS tapes, CDs and books on tape are $1 each. Baked goods will include everything from whole cakes to individually wrapped cookies; prices vary accordingly. Drinks will also be sold.
The Friends of the Library Book Store, located behind the library circulation area, has undergone reorganization during the summer months with the addition of new shelving built by Phenix City resident Lamar Powers.
The Friends of the Library will accept donations of gently used books, DVDs, etc., and shopping bags until the day before the sale. You may drop them off just inside the entrance of the Phenix City-Russell County Library in the designated container.
Proceeds of the sale will benefit the Phenix City-Russell County Library.
