Last year the Friends of the Kenai Library book sale didn’t happen, so this weekend they are having a Mega Book Sale this weekend September 18th – 20th. Kathy Heus of the Friends of the Library is helping organize this year’s Mega Book Sale at the Home Gallery Furniture store in Kenai, “We’ve accumulated thousands of books and have had our volunteers sorting and getting this mega sale ready to start at noon Thursday at the Home Gallery furniture store thanks to Lee and Dee Cassel the owners of the store, then Friday from 10:00am to 5:30pm and Saturday 10:00am to 3:00pm. The books are organized in categories like mystery thrillers, romance, cook books, children’s and young adult titles, crafts, sports and history books,” said Heus. Books will be only a dollar each for hard covers and .50 cents for paperbacks.
All funds from the Mega Book Sale will go to the Friends of the Library, according to Heus and help fund different library projects that aren’t available through the regular budget, “In the past we have helped them fund the automatic check out system which was just installed this year. The library had a matching fund grant we were worked to make that happen and like to make funds available where needed, you’ll also be able to join the friends of the library at the book sale,” she said. The Mega Book Sale will be held at Home Gallery Furniture & Flooring at the Old Carrs Mall in Kenai.
