This weekend, starting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday evening and running until 3 p.m. Sunday, the Friends of the Chappaqua Library will hold its annual book sale to raise funds for the library.
The sale opens for Friends of the Chappaqua Library members Wednesday evening and is open to the public starting Thursday at 10 a.m.
The sale runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
It is $2 for hard cover books, $1 for trade paperbacks and .50 for mass paperbacks until Saturday when all books are half-price. On Sunday, the books are all free.
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday the sale is open to only charities and schools. From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. the sale is again open to the public and all remaining books are free.
The remaining books on Sunday are donated to charities, hospices and shipped to our men and women serving overseas.
The book sale is arranged by Shobha Vanchiswar, president of The Friends of the Chappaqua Library. She and her team of 70 to 80 volunteers help sort and place the thousands of donated books they receive and work the cashiers during the sale period.
"This is truly a community event. It’s great to see everyone come together try to help the Chappaqua Library," Vanchiswar said. "This is a book reading community so tons of people donate books and lots of people come to the book sale as well."
