Are you ready to find some great books at a great price? The John’s Island Book Sale, offered by the Charleston Friends of the Library is just around the corner. On July 27 and 28, more than 10,000 books, DVDs, and CDs will be available at the John’s Island Regional Library for incredibly low prices. Prices start at $1 for paperbacks and $3 for hardback books. Children’s books start at just $0.50!
Last year’s annual John’s Island book sale raised more than $7,000, and the Friends hope to exceed that amount. All proceeds raised at the book sale go directly to the Charleston County Public Library System to provide funds for items that cannot be acquired through the regular budget.
The Charleston Friends of the Library: The Charleston Friends of the Library, a nonprofit volunteer organization, raises money through book sales to help fund Library services, equipment, training, materials and public programming. The Friends collect and sort donated books for resale to raise money.
The Charleston County Public Library: The Charleston County Public Library System is a dynamic network of 16 branch libraries that serves a diverse population over a vast geographic area. The County library system strives to provide equal access to information, technology, programs, and services for all the people who call Charleston County home.
