PLYMOUTH – Terryville Public Library will be holding its semi-annual book sale this Saturday for the first time in two years.
The book sale will be held Saturday, May 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the library, located at 244 Main St. A rain date has also been set for June 4, also from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
"We're bringing it back as an in-person event," said Diane Allaire, circulation assistant at Terryville Public Library. "We held off for the past two years because of covid. This is the first time that we are holding it this year. It will be held in a garage area in the back of the building."
Due to the semi-annual book sale being postponed for the past couple years, Allaire said that the library has built-up a wide selection of books that will be available for people to purchase.
"Our shelves are very full," she said. "There are books from a lot of good authors and a lot of new books. People have been bringing in a lot of books to donate during the past couple years."
Books will range in price from 25 cents to $2 for hardcover books. There will also be DVDs for sale for $1 each.
The book sale is organized by the Friends of Terryville Public Library. It is typically held twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Proceeds from the book sale support programs and activities for the community at the library.
Allaire encouraged people to come out and find something fun to read.
"It's going to be a nice, hot day, so you're going to want to get here early," she said. “Come find your favorite authors and books at great prices.”
For those unable to make Saturday's book sale, books are also for sale on an ongoing basis on the bookshelves in the library's foyer, stairwell and multi-purpose room.
