The Friends of the Cumberland County Public Library Book Sale will be held Feb. 21-22 for “Friends” members and for non-members on Feb. 25-26.

The program, run by the Friends of the Cumberland County Public Library, will still require appointments to get any shopping in.

Members of Friends of the Cumberland County Public Library will have an opportunity to shop by appointment on Monday, Feb. 21 and Tuesday, February 22 from 12-6 p.m.  Appointments will be available for non-members Friday, Feb. 25, 1-5 p.m.; Saturday, Feb. 26, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.

To make an appointment or ask a question, call (910) 483-7727 ext. 1304 and leave a message.  A volunteer will return your phone call.  Appointments can be scheduled starting today.

Books of all types will be available in the sale, which will take place at the Cumberland County Public Library Headquarters Building at 300 Maiden Lane in Downtown Fayetteville.

Visitors are encouraged to bring their own bag or box to transport their book purchases in, because juggling books is quite difficult.
