Sheppard Memorial Library hosts book sale to fund programs

Greenville, N.C. (WNCT) – Sheppard Memorial Library raised funds by hosting a book sale to benefit library programs.

Over 1,000 books were for sale this weekend at the library. The goal was to clear out inventory to add new books to its collection. Sunday, the prices were lowered to .25 cents a copy. Dick Wolfe with Sheppard Memorial Library says it’s important to sell as many books as they can.

“The proceeds of the sale go towards enhances library programs that they may not otherwise be able to afford, so we pay for the summer reading program for children,” Wolfe explained.

Wolfe says previously the money from the sale helped provide computers to the library. The next book drive takes place February 5th at the Greenville Convention Center.
