So from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, November 5, the Friends will hold a “Big Book Sale” at the Asheboro Public Library, 201 Worth Street. Admission to the sale is free.
There will be a preview sale from 6-9 p.m. Friday, November 4, also at the Asheboro library. Admission to the preview is $5.
The sale will feature over 3,000 used books. Hardbacks will go for $1 and buyers can get two paperbacks for $1 – half the usual prices.
Proceeds go to the library's book budget.
Business at the bookshop, at 226 Sunset Avenue, will go on as usual. Hours are 10-2 Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
But the library sale will help prepare for the Sunset renovation, which will claim a portion of the bookshop’s sorting space and require some remodeling of the bookshop itself.
The bookshop will remain open as long as possible when construction begins, and reopen as soon as possible after it is complete.
