Library $5 Bag Book Sale Set For Saturday

February 1, 2017

Friends of West Florida Public Library will hold a $5 Blowout Bag Sale Saturday, Feb. 4, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Pensacola Library, located at 239 N. Spring St.

Here’s how it works: Attendees will receive a brown paper bag when they enter the library and can fill it with whatever books will fit inside. Each bag is only $5, and there is no limit on bags. There will be mysteries, novels, reference books, children’s books, biographies, military history and many more categories to browse.

“The $5 bag sale is always one of our most popular events,” said Linda Williams, immediate past president and book sale chair. “Besides giving the community the opportunity to get great books at a great price, the sale is another way for the Friends of the Library to raise funds to support library programs.”

Friends of West Florida Public Library President Mike Lane said, “Our volunteers are working hard to fill the tables with the best books we have. There will definitely be an opportunity for everybody to get some great buys.”

The Friends of West Florida Public Library is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing financial support to the West Florida Public Library system through membership fees, book sales and donations. The Friends organization was the major source of funds for the library’s 2016 Summer Reading Program, and it also provides funds for other literacy and educational activities.
