The Charleston Friends of the Library Host Annual That BIG Book Sale October 12-14

Love to read? Love cheap books? If you do, then the Omar Shrine Auditorium is the place to be on October 12-14. The Charleston Friends of the Library are proud to present their 37th annual That BIG Book Sale event, with its special Preview Sale for members taking place on October 11th from 5-8 p.m. This year’s That BIG Book Sale will feature an even larger selection- more than 70,000 books, DVDs, CDs, audio books, sheet music, and maps all available to purchase for prices as low as $.50.

Proceeds from That BIG Book Sale support more than 7,000 free community programs offered through the Charleston County Library system. “Every month we fund hundreds and hundreds of programs that happen in the branches — programs, classes, resume building — activities for the diverse community of Charleston,” explains Brittany Mathis, Executive Director of the Charleston Friends of the Library.

Admission to That BIG Book Sale is free. Items will be half price on Sunday, with the exception of tote bags. A preview sale and special performance by Mayor John J. Tecklenburg for Friends of the Library members will be held during the evening of Thursday, October 11th from 5-8 p.m.

Guests can become a member of the Friends of the Library for $20 at the door, and can purchase tickets to the optional event reception here. Checks, cash, and major credit cards accepted.

The Charleston Friends of the Library is a nonprofit organization that supports and advocates for the Charleston County Public Library system.
