Come by The Reader’s Friend Book Store during February for specials on gently used books. The Hopewell/Prince George Friends of the Library are reducing already low prices on a variety of genres to celebrate Library Lovers’ Month. The first week of February, most children’s books are only $.25 or 5/$1.00. Books on parenting will be ½ price. This will encourage parents to “snuggle with a book” and get involved with the Winter Reading Program. Specials on romance, mystery and other fiction and nonfiction will follow.
The Reader’s Friend Book Store is located on the ground floor of the Hopewell Library and is open Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Staffed by volunteers and filled with wonderful donations, the book store provides funding for youth and adult programming at all libraries served by the Appomattox Regional Library System. In addition, proceeds from the book store fund special purchases for the library like the game systems, public address system, and materials for the collection.
