Book sale to resume at Beckley library


— After completing its successful spring book sale, the Raleigh County Public Library’s Friends of the Library members have decided to continue the sale on Saturdays starting May 3 through the month at the entrance of the library.

The sale, offering children’s and popular fiction books, will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31 at the Beckley library.

Friends member Joan Tomasek said patrons at the April 5-12 book sale bought books, breaking a record with thousands of books sold. She said the book sale was successful because of the community’s support in donating books and then attending the sale.

Thanks to the public, members are now looking to improve the parking lot at the library, she said.
