Readers and listeners are invited to a Book “Werm” sale of used books Friday and Saturday at The Grove at Zona Rosa.
Proceeds go to scholarships provided by PEO, an international philanthropic education organization. The “Werm” in the book sale’s name stands for Women’s Education Receives the Money.
“We will have well over 5,000 books,” said Alice Johnson, co-chairman of the event. All the books sold will be in good condition, she said, and books in “less than pristine condition” will be on a free table.
The book sale will be held 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day.
Books are $1 for hardback and 50 cents for paperback. Children’s books are 50 cents and 25 cents.
Staff from the Mid-Continent Public Library’s Boardwalk Branch will be on hand with an E-reader petting zoo to teach customers how to use E-readers and download E-books from the library. Library card registration will be available.
Another table will feature local authors who will have their books available for sale.
