It’s that time of the year again. This weekend the Friends of Central Arkansas Libraries (FOCAL) will host a huge used book sale. The event will be held 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Friday and Saturday and 1-4 p.m., Sunday at the Main Library basement in downtown Little Rock. Hardbacks will cost you about $1, and paperbacks will go for about $.50. Funds generated by the book sale support FOCAL programs like Summer Reading Club, Reading Is Fundamental (RIF – distributing free books to school children), Read To Me (supplying books to newborns and toddlers when their parents register them for a library card), and many other public programs at the Main Library and CALS’s twelve branches.
So, buy used and support great causes! For more information about the FOCAL book sale, check out their website, www.cals.org.
