The St. Charles Community College library will host its 19th annual used book sale from 7:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, April 9-11. The book sale is part of the celebration for National Library Week, which is April 8-14. The sale will be in the library, located in the Learning Resource Center on the SCC campus, 4601 Mid Rivers Mall Drive in Cottleville.
Both fiction and non-fiction material will be available. Books will be $.50 for paperbacks and $1 for hardbacks. Faculty, students and friends of SCC donated most of the books for the sale.
National Library Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries, librarians and library workers in schools, campuses and communities nationwide. First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.
The library is still accepting donations of books, videos, CDs and children’s books. Proceeds from the sale will go to the acquisitions fund to purchase new materials for the college’s library. For more information, call Theresa Flett at 636-922-8620.
