ASHEBORO – Need a literary Christmas gift, or want to stock up on reading material for the holidays?
The Friends of the Library Bookshop will offer author book bundles in December, and host an author appearance during Asheboro’s Christmas Downtown on Friday, December 8.
The bookshop will be open 6-9 p.m. during the Christmas Downtown event. Loretta Lutman, author of I Shoot Squirrels on Sundays and Other Stories, will be on hand to sell and sign books.
Beginning December 2, the bookshop will offer bundles of four books by the same author for $5 each. Books in each bundle will be tied together with a Christmas ribbon, making a lovely gift for fellow readers.
The bundles will feature a variety of authors.
The bookshop is located at 226 Sunset Avenue. Regular hours are 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Gently used hardback books go for $3, paperbacks for $2 and trade paperbacks for $2.50, with prices increasing by $1 for books published in the last four years. All children’s books are $1. Some special books are priced individually.
A portion of bookshop proceeds support Randolph County Public Libraries book budgets. For more information about the bookshop, call 336-629-1536 during regular hours.
