The Charleston Friends of the Library Host That Summer Book Sale

Jun-19-17 - Jun-24-17 All day


The Charleston Friends of the Library will hold its That Summer Book from June 23rd to the 25th, where wonderful bargains will be in store.  The sale takes place at the Charleston County Main Library branch (68 Calhoun St.), and boasts a vast collection of more than 20,000 books sorted by subject, and hundreds of media titles.

Books, DVDs, and CDs, will be available with prices starting at $1 for paperbacks and $3 for hardback books.  Children’s books start at just $0.50.  Special pricing takes place on Sunday.  Last year’s annual sale raised more than $12,000, and the Friends hope to exceed that amount. All proceeds raised at the book sale go directly to the Charleston County Public Library System.
