book sale at the Franklin library April 2-4!


Liz Jenkins


The downtown Franklin branch (1314 Columbia Ave., Franklin, TN 37064) of the Williamson County library is having a book sale April 2-4! This is a great way to discover some new books AND help raise funds for the library. My daughter and I love to spend an hour browsing and we always come home with a few new ones for our collection. I’ve always loved libraries and here’s another reason why.

BUT, from an organizing standpoint – this is a great way to clear out books you no longer read or want and feel good about it! Yes, you can donate for these sales. Well, probably not for this one, but you can bring in books anytime and just drop them off at the check out desk. They’ll even give you a tax receipt so you can write them off on your taxes! I can’t tell you how many I’ve brought over there for clients, and for myself – so I can clear out my shelves for more!

Here’s the link for more info:
And I’ve cut and pasted from the website:

The next Friends Book Sale will be held Thursday through Saturday, April 2-4. Hours are: Thursday, 9:30 am-7:00 pm; Friday, 9:30 am-4:30 pm; Saturday, 9:30 am-4:00 pm. Books are half-price on Saturday. A Friends Members-Only Preview Night will be held on Wednesday evening prior to the opening day of the sale from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The April Friends Book Sale will showcase some older and some quite valuable items. Comic books, older issues of Life and other magazines, older books you may remember from your childhood days, or books that were favorites of your parents and grandparents. All of these are priced to sell, lower than E-bay listings. Come early to view these goodies at the table dedicated to you collectors.
