The St. Charles Community College library will host its 24th annual used book sale from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. (Monday through Wednesday), April 10-12.
The book sale is part of the celebration for National Library Week, which is April 9-15. The sale will be in the Paul and Helen Schnare Library, located in the Learning Resource Center on the SCC campus, 4601 Mid Rivers Mall Drive in Cottleville.
Both fiction and non-fiction material will be available. Books will be sold for $.50 for paperbacks and $1 for hardbacks. Faculty, students and friends of SCC have donated books, and other books are withdrawn from the library’s collection.
National Library Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries, librarians and library works in schools, campuses and communities nationwide. First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.
The library is still accepting donations of used books. Proceeds from the sale will be used to purchase new materials for the SCC library. For more information, call Theresa Flett at 636-922-8620.
