Libraries preparing for annual book sale

April 7, 2007

Albany - - Are you an avid reader who wants a good bargain for a good book? 

You may want to head to the Albany/Dougherty County's annual book drive next weekend. Saturday, library workers unloaded boxes of books they plan to sell either because they have duplicate copies or because they have more updated versions of the books.

They're also selling books that readers donated. They're almost giving away some good reads. You'll find used, fiction books ranging from 50 cents to one dollar.

You wont pay more than $2.00 for new books or even books on tape.  

"We haven't finished unpacking everything. We just literally still have hundreds of boxes left to go through and put out," says Gary Barton.

The sale will take place at the future library headquarters in the old Badcock building on Dawson Road in Albany. The drive will be held Saturday from 8am until 5pm.
