If you’re looking for a great deal on books, The Friends of the Beaufort Library: Beaufort, Lobeco and St. Helena Branches (FOL) will hold its annual Spring Book Sale from 10:30 am - 3:30 pm on Saturday, April 26, 2014 in Beaufort Branch Library located at 311 Scott Street in Beaufort, SC. The sale will include thousands of books, CDs, DVDs, audio books and more at very reasonable and often discounted prices.
Their press release states:"As with all our book sales, the proceeds will help fund programs for children, teens and adults at the three branches we service – downtown Beaufort, Lobeco and St. Helena Island. Programs we fund include the Summer Reading Programs for all age groups, special events like Books Sandwiched In, and of course, purchase and lease of reading materials. All are among the many materials and programs the FOL helps underwrite.”
The FOL Beaufort Library is being too modest. The group has even been known to help the Beaufort District Collection with special requests. For example, in October 2013 they contributed funds to help with the catering of Dr. Stephen Wise's keynote lecture of the One County Reads the Civil War series, "Beaufort District and the Civil War." In the past they've funded hurricane screens to finish off encasing the 2nd floor after the BDC relocated upstairs.
We appreciate their help - and we encourage you to patronize their Spring Book Sale on April 26th.
