It is book sale time at the Red River Parish Library. Librarian Trey Lewis said it is bargain time with everything on sale for one dime each.
The Library’s Community Room is lined with tables and boxes and stacks of books. These are surplus books and other books and items that were donated for the sale. Just about every topic and category of reading material is represented.
The Journal found Children’s Librarian Kala Sims was manning the store when the Journal visited. She said they hope to sell out by the close of the sale on Friday. The sale continues every day this week from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm.
In addition to books in every category, there was a good supply of reference works and encyclopedias. Sims pointed out the boxes and boxes of movies on VHS and DVD plus music CDs and some other items too.
There was no book sale last year due to the COVID-19 shutdown. Sims said, “We had more books donated over the last year than in previous years, so we have bargain prices to clear everything out.” For example, every single item is just a dime. And if you buy more, you get more, up to a big box full of items for just a dollar.
