Friends of the Library semi-annual book sale is this weekend

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

Friends of the Phenix City-Russell County Library need your help this weekend. They are holding their semi-annual book and bake sale at the library. Books are available at prices as low as $.50. One member has also made various plants and flowers available for purchase. Many of the organization's members are offering sweet and savory treats as well. Joy Schrage is one of nearly four dozen members of the organization. She told News 3 Midday that these sales generally raise about $2,000 each time they're held. That money helps fund activities and needed supplies that are not included in the supplements received by the library. One example is children's programs in the summer. Hours for the sale are Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. EDT and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. EDT. The sale is at the Phenix City-Russell County Library.
