The autumn colors are beginning to pop, reminding we all of the vibrant hues of gracing book jackets as they lay upon the tables lined up for perusal and sale.

The Claiborne County Public Library is preparing for the much-loved Fall Book Sale, slated for the week of Oct. 3-8. Talk about an event! The librarians work feverishly each fall to bring the best in books, movies, music and more at a nominal fee. And the public can’t seem to get enough as they make their purchases, read or listen and eventually place them for safekeeping and future reference on their home library shelves or gifting them to others once finished.

All proceeds from the annual book sale goes directly into the Library coffers to, among a few things, replenish the facility’s shelves with new titles.
