Lovers of a bargain book deal might want to run or roll into the Rock Island Public Library’s Downtown Book Sale next Friday, July 28, and build that stack of reading for the long drive back from Bix or Ragbrai.
Book sale hours are 10 am to 1pm on Friday, July 28, at the Rock Island Downtown Library Community Room, 401 19th Street, Rock Island. PALS (People Advocating for Library Services) volunteers with the Rock Island Public Library Foundation run the monthly book sale on the 4th Friday of each month through October. Unless specially marked, items are offered on a “fill a bag for a voluntary donation” basis. Shopper bags are available.
While you’re at the sale, ask volunteers for details on becoming a Library PAL, or purchase a reusable library book bag. All proceeds benefit special library projects, including the library’s new fine-free lending policy for Rock Island Public Library cardholders.
