Book sale at Vermillion Public Library July 18-20 Great Books at Great Prices is the theme for the Used Book Sale at the Vermillion Public Library July 18-20.
Hardcover and paperback books, magazines, videos and other materials retired from the library's collection and donated to the Friends of the Vermillion Public Library are specially priced for the sale. Items sell for 25 or 50 cents each or customers can fill a bag for $3 or a box for $4 with items of their choice.
This summer's book sale is one of the events during Vermillion's Crazy Day Thursday, July 18 from 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. The sale will also run Friday, July 19 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, July 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"Because our used book sales are so popular, we're starting the sale early Thursday morning and staying open late Thursday evening. We'll also be open Friday and Saturday during library hours for the convenience of our customers and people in town for the county fair," said Steve Waller, a Friends member.
"This year's sale will have an especially good selection of historical fiction and science fiction," said Librarian Jane Larson.
The used book sale is sponsored by the Friends of the Vermillion Public Library to support programs like the Summer Reading Program, Literary Luncheon and special equipment purchases.
