The Charleston Friends of the Library are proud to present That BIG Book Sale, Oct. 11, 12 and 13 at the Omar Shrine Auditorium. More than 60,000 books, DVDs, CDs, books on CDs and tapes, VHS, sheet music and maps will be on sale to the public with prices starting at just $.50. For the price of one movie ticket or one new paperback book, shoppers can walk out with a basket full of books, DVDs and CDs that they can enjoy over and over again or pass on to a friend. The event will also feature a rare book auction.
The Charleston County Library system continues to see a huge surge in patron interest: from people attending computer and resume preparation classes, to those enjoying free writing workshops led by Charleston’s best writers, to children’s story hours, Metropolitan Opera simulcast and of course books, DVDs, CDs and more. And it’s all free. For more than 30 years, The Friends of the Library, a non-profit, has been busy raising money to help the library support all of these exciting community events.
