We would like to invite everyone to come to the Friends of the Library Book Sale Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, October 3-5 at the Douglas County Public Library.  There is a good variety of books to choose from for all ages. Come Thursday for the best selection. Friday will be Half-Price Day, and Saturday you can pick out a paper grocery sack full of books for only $3.00.  You can’t beat it.  Proceeds from this sale will go toward funding the Dolly Parton Imagination Library which provides one book each month free of charge to children in Douglas County from birth through age 5.
