The Book Sale is Coming!
Every year, the wonderful Ladies Library Auxiliary holds a book sale at the Vicksburg District Library that provides funding for our children’s department book purchases and programming. The Ladies labor each Tuesday throughout the year, sorting, pricing and organizing the many items donated by our generous Vicksburg community.
This year’s book sale is shaping up to be a great one, with tons of books from a myriad of genres and for all ages. Some featured categories include books on history and war, cookbooks, biographies, hard and soft-cover fiction, puzzles, and VHS tapes for 25 cents!
The book sale will be held Friday June 12th, Saturday June 13th, and Monday June 15th (the same weekend as the car show!). To give the Auxiliary time to finalize the organization of the sale, the last day donations will be accepted is May 15th.
Thank you to the Ladies Library Auxiliary and to the Vicksburg community for all you do to make this annual sale a success!
