RACINE — The Lobby Book Sale at the Racine Public Library will be “going for the green” in the month of March, in celebration of both St. Patrick’s Day and the Spring Equinox.
In addition to nonfiction books about Ireland and Irish culture, there will be novels by Irish authors. There will be some gardening books available, and the children’s section of the sale will feature everything Irish, as well as books related to Easter and spring.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Racine Public Library, the proceeds from the sales support the services and programs of the library. The Lobby Sale is open during regular library hours from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Children's books cost 50 cents. Adult hardcovers cost $1 and paperbacks cost 50 cents. DVDS cost $2, compact discs are $1 and audio books are specially priced. Like-new books on the shelf labeled new books are specially priced at $5 or less.
In addition to the Lobby Sale, the Friends hold Spring and Fall Book Sales, which include a larger stock of books, AV and related materials. The Spring Sale will be held April 12-14. The Friends are seeking donations of books, DVDs, CDs, VHS, art, sheet music and toys.
