The Friends of the Winfield Public Library will hold their annual book sale August 26, 27, and 28 at the Winfield Public Library, 605 College St.

Sheryl Erickson, Friends board president, said the group is excited to return to the regular 3-day format after two years of Covid precautions.  “The smaller patio sales last year were fun, but everyone loves the big sale and we’re happy to be able to offer that again.” book sale hours

The 3-day format includes a members-only preview sale, one day of public sale, and a “bag sale.”

On Friday, August 26 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm a preview sale will be open to all current members of the Friends of the Winfield Public Library.  Memberships may be purchased at the door for $10 or $20 for a family membership.

“One perk of being a member of the Friends group is early access to the sale,” said Erickson.

The sale will then open to the public on Saturday, August 27 from 9:00am to 2:00pm and Sunday, August 28 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.  Sunday is “bag sale” day, where community members can fill a bag for a flat fee.

All proceeds from the Friends of the Library book sale are returned to the library to support special projects.  The Friends of the Winfield Public Library supports activities such as the Summer Reading Program and the Discovery exhibits. For those who believe in literacy programs, love the library and wish to support strong community, membership in The Friends is a great way to show support.  For further information about the sale or about becoming a Friends member, contact WPL at 620-221-4470.
