RICHMOND, Ind. – After more than two years, the Friends of Morrisson-Reeves Library will again raise money for the library with a book sale.
The COVID-19 pandemic canceled the spring and fall 2020 book sales and all of the 2021 indoor sales. During 2021, there were drive-through, grab-bag sales, but this month will be the first full-scale sale since the pandemic began.
Everything will be $ 1, and each child will receive a free book. All genres are available, including fiction, mysteries, history, biography, cookbooks, crafts, DVDs, kids’ books, hobbies, literature, art books and more.
Hours will be 10 am-6 pm April 28, 10 am-5 pm April 29 and 10 am-2 pm April 30. If you can not wait that long, Friends members have a special shopping day April 27. Memberships are $ 5 for individuals or $ 12 for families.
