Friends of the Boonslick Regional Library Holding Book and Furniture Sale [INTERVIEW]
When I was a kid, I used to haunt the libraries here in town like it was my job. I still remember the smell of the books in our local libraries and the excitement when I’d find a book I’d never read before. As I got older, I got into owning my own books. I took a small little sense of pride in knowing that these books were all a part of my history and education.
Sadly, I lost all the books I’d acquired either from my years of school, my personal collections, and gifts in that weird apartment fire a few years back. But I’m working on building up that bookshelf bit by bit. I’m always looking for deals and sales to find all the books that I love so much.
When things like this come up, I’m always ready to tell you guys all about it, because not only can you get some great books at a good discount, but you can help out the local library here with their needs. I got to talk with Jackie, Barb and Janice about the sale and the other great stuff coming up like children’s book week and the summer reading programs.
So make sure to get down to the Boonslick used book sale on May 16 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., and May 17 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Get more information by going to their website or calling (660) 827-7323, and you can always go by at 219 W. 3rd Street in Sedalia. Children up to age 18 will be able to start signing up for all programs during our Summer Read. Programs will include but not be limited to, Book Buddies Storytime, Teen Programs, Reading Clubs for Children and Teens, Demonstrations and a lot more on top of that. This years theme is “Fizz Boom Read.” They’ll be learning and reading about all things science.
