SCC celebrates National Library Week with used book sale April 14-16

April 08, 2014

St. Charles Community College library will host its 21th annual used book sale from 7:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, April 14-16. The book sale is part of the celebration for National Library Week, which is April 13-19. 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 sold for $.50 for paperbacks and $1 for hardbacks. Faculty, student and friends of SCC have donated books and other books are withdrawn from the library’s collection.

“This year we will hold a silent auction for a set of seven classic car books and a five volume set of St. James Encyclopedia of Popular Culture,” said Theresa Flett, SCC reference librarian. “There will be a great selection of books at extremely reasonable prices.”

National Library Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries, librarians and library works 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 SCC library. For more information, call Theresa Flett at 636-922-8620.
