Hickory — The Friends of Hickory Public Libraries will hold a giant outdoor spring book sale on Friday, April 30, and Saturday, May 1, at the Patrick Beaver Library at the SALT Block. With hundreds of titles to choose from, everyone in the family will find something to take home. Everything is priced to go at only $1 each.

“Now that spring is here and the weather is pleasant, we are excited to host an outdoor, socially distanced book sale,” said Rochelle Walton, President of the Friends group. “We were unable to have our annual October Book sale in 2020, which means we are absolutely overflowing with books. Please spread the word about our book sale, and come shop with us out in the breezeway of the Patrick Beaver library.”

The outdoor sale is being held at the Patrick Beaver Library, 375 3rd St. NE, Hickory, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on April 30 and from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on May 1. All proceeds benefit the Friends of Hickory Public Library.

Masks are required, and patrons are asked to observe social distancing.

The nonprofit Friends of Hickory Public Library is dedicated to providing support and services to enhance the Patrick Beaver and Ridgeview libraries.
