PAULDING – The Paulding County Carnegie Library Friends of the Library is pleased to announce the grand fall opening of the new “Buy the Book” used bookstore, located in the rear of the annex next door to the historic Carnegie library in Paulding.
“The days of books piled on tables and on boxes are gone!” said Sam Clippinger, treasurer of the Friends. “We are using shelving from an old bookstore in Toledo and our volunteers have constructed beautiful wooden shelves that stand along the walls. Now the Friend’s book sale really looks like a book store.”
The Friends of the Library offer a variety of used books for sale, including fiction, non-fiction, biographies, large print, children’s titles, reference and much more.
Although many of the titles are withdrawals from the library collection, many are donated. All books are sold for donation only.
“There is something for everyone,” said Clippinger. She continued, “We take all donations and there have been some treasures. Every visit to the book store will reveal something new. And, during the month of October, you will be sure to ‘scare up a bargain’ at Buy the Book.”
The grand fall opening of Buy the Book will be held each Saturday in October from 9 a.m.-noon.
The Friends of the Paulding County Carnegie Library was founded over 20 years ago as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The Friends exist to provide monetary and volunteer support for library programs, projects and special events. The Friends are also a key component in communicating with government entities and legislative bodies on the importance of public libraries. They meet every second Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. at the historic Carnegie Library in Paulding.
