Hays Public Library to host annual spring book sale

The Friends of the Hays Public Library is hosting its annual spring book sale in the Schmidt Gallery of Hays Public Library. The sale will be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday; and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday.

The book store has plenty in stock for any reader -- fiction, non-fiction, biographies, picture books and more. The friends have more than 2,500 VHS tapes that will be for sale, either 25 cents per tape or six tapes for $1. There are also hundreds of picture books. The sale is an inch sale; patrons will pay only 25 cents per inch of books (measuring the width of spines while stacked).

For the early bird special Friday, the sale will extend to Friends of the Hays Public Library whose membership is current. However, those who wish to shop in the store at the reduced rate will be able to sign up for a friends membership the day of the sale. Membership fees are as little as $1 for youth (age 18 and younger), and $5 for an individual membership. There are also options for family and lifetime memberships. All other times, the book sale is open to the general public. All proceeds of the Friends of the Hays Public Library go to support programs at Hays Public Library.

Hays Public Library continually is adding programs to the calendar. For more information, visit www.hayspublib.org.
