ECC is holding its annual “Friends of the Library Book Sale” on Oct. 10-12 from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. The sale helps raise funds for college activities and provides affordable reading options for the public.
Rather than paying full price for a used book online, ECC Library Services Director Lisa Farrell encourages students and community members alike to stop by. “We’ve seen many great fiction titles go quickly for 50 cents a paperback and $1.00 for hardbacks, including textbooks – it’s quite a steal.” The cost of each book ranges from 50 cents to one dollar. Sale items range from fiction and non-fiction books, recent magazines, and popular movies.
Donations from the public are being accepted through Sept. 30 with a request that Readers’ Digest or Encyclopedia sets not be sent. Various donations include fiction and non-fiction books, recent magazines, and popular movies.
Friends of the Library allocates book sale funds to support free raffle drawings during Falcon Fest, snacks during finals week, and additional movies for the circulating collection.
