Big book bonanza back

Sale at Koelbel raises money for library district

Posted

Biography, history, fiction, political commentary, science, poetry, cookbooks, children's books, as well as audio books, CDs, DVDs …

Find them all at Koelbel Library, 5955 S. Holly Street, Centennial, from Sept. 4-7. It's time for the annual Friends of the Arapahoe Library District Used Book Sale.

Friends of the Arapahoe Library District members contribute many hours to hand- sorting book donations and organizing them so readers can locate titles that interest them.

Through this and other activities, the group has granted the library district $120,000 to date in 2014. Funds are used for author events, the summer reading program, special purchases for the libraries and more.

Sept. 7 is Bag Day — the Friends provide the bag and visitors fill it for $6 a bag.

Hours: Sept. 4: 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Sept. 5 and 6: 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Sept. 7: 1 to 4:30 p.m.

On Sept. 3, members of the Friends will enjoy a Special Preview Sale from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. (It's not too late to join.)
