Thousands of Books Have New Owners Thanks to Fall Book Sale

November 17, 2013

Sunday was the last day of the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library Fall Book Sale.

Thousands of books, ranging from mystery to photography, left the shelves at the Gordon Avenue Library.

The Friends of the Library hosted the event with hopes to raise money for programs put on by the regional library staff.

During the spring book sale, $100,000 was raised and they are hoping to raise that amount during the fall sale.

“People have enjoyed it a lot,” says Bill Davis, manager of the book sale. “The quality of the books is what really makes this successful.”

All of the books in the fall sale were donated by people in the community.

“When people donate really wonderful books, it's a nice way to pass them along,” says Davis.
