Big Book Sale Benefits Library in Union County

EAST BUFFALO TOWNSHIP — At times Faith United Church near Lewisburg looked like it was having a Black Friday sale. And for many of these people it really was Christmas in July. There were around 45,000 used books to choose from at $20 a bag.

“That’s a deal you really can’t beat,” Jill Thomas said.

Jill Thomas of Lewisburg knew what she wanted at the annual book sale, which benefits The Public Library for Union County.

“I came to look for some personal development books, some fictions, maybe some arts and crafts, and some travel books,” Thomas said.

The books were donated to the library by people in the community, starting nearly a year before the sale.

“So if you come on out, there’s lots to choose from. They’re all separated into different categories so they’re easy to find,” Bridgette Thompson said.

Even if you didn’t make it for the first day of the sale, don’t worry, there is plenty to choose from. Organizers said there is an entire other room with more books so they can put out fresh titles daily.

“We restock everyday until we run out,” Thompson said.

“There’s a lot to choose from, definitely. There’s something for everybody here,” said Tonya Reader of Sunbury.

The book sale runs until Saturday at Faith United Church, on Old Turnpike Road near Lewisburg. After noon on Saturday, organizers say other libraries are invited to come and pick out free books.
