Millsboro book sale set for July 17 at the Hut, next to library


Millsboro is preparing for its unique annual book sale. Already, many have contributed books to the sale, and supporters are working to organize non-fiction books by subject, such as cookbooks or biographies. For fiction readers, popular (and not-so-popular) authors are sorted and displayed in alphabetical order. Books for children and young adults are sorted by approximate age level.

For those who prefer e-books, how about shopping for gifts? Many of the books are considered to be of bookstore quality. For summer reading, gifting or just browsing for that elusive book, the sale may have just what people want.

Those interested in perusing the selection should go to the Hut next to the library at 219 State Street in Millsboro on Friday, July 17, from noon until 6 p.m. or Saturday, July 18, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Anyone who is afraid all the “good books” will be picked over may become a member for $5 and come to the sale on Thursday evening, July 16, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. for the member preview.

Paperbacks will sell for $1, hardbacks for $2 and a bag of books on Saturday for $4. For information, call Sandy Stevens at (302) 934-8865 or Jan Thompson at (302) 732-3216.
