47th annual used book sale

It's the most wonderful time of the year!  The Friends of the Bay County Libraries 47th annual used book sale is happening August 4 - 6, 2022 at the Bay County Civic Arena.  All items are priced to move, with books ranging from $0.50 to $2.00.  The Saturday all-day clearance lets you fill a box or bag of any items for only $4.00!

The Bay County Library System will have a booth on Thursday and Friday where you can purchase book bags to carry your finds for only $1.00 and pick up information on upcoming events and services.  Everyone who stops at the booth can register to win a $50 Meijer gift card.  Bay County residents who sign up for a first time BCLS library card at the sale will get a FREE book bag along with the gift card entry (I.D. showing your address is required).  The gift card winner will be contacted to arrange pickup after the drawing on Monday, August 15.

A 501(c)3 nonprofit, the Friends of the Bay County Libraries uses all proceeds from the book sale to buy equipment, materials, and services for the public not made possible through the Bay County Library System's operating budget.  Earnings from previous sales have funded such projects as children's reading programs, library publications, visits by children's authors, annual New York Times best-selling author appearances at the State Theater, and community meeting room furniture.
