BECKLEY - A bi-annual book sale in Raleigh County is raising money for a local library.
The Beckley Friends of the Library is hosting the week-long book sale and all proceeds benefit the Raleigh County Public Library. The book fair is open through Saturday during library hours. Hardcover books are $1, while paperback and children's books are 50 cents.
Organizers said they enjoy meeting new people at the book sale. “It's an exciting thing because most of us really love books and we love to share books, so when somebody comes in and there's something that we know about that they would like, it just feels good,” explained Friends of the Library member Miles Dean.
All books will be half-price on Friday. On Saturday, a bag of books will cost $1.
