Books for Keeps Annual Book Sale


The Athens nonprofit Books for Keeps will holding its Annual Book sale beginning next week. Organizers say the sale allows donated books to find new life. Many of the families currently served by Books for Keeps come to the sale in order to stock their home libraries. Preview night is Thursday, Augusts 3rd, and a $10 admission fee gives interested buyers first crack at the wide range of books.

Leslie Hale is Executive Director of the organization.

“That is where all the books that get donated to our organization, that we can’t use in our program go so that we can send those back out into our community” Hale said. “Books at our book sale are priced anywhere from 25 cents to $3.00 so it’s a great way to score some really great finds.”

Prices go even lower as the sale goes on. The book sale takes place the first two weekends in August at the Homewood Village Shopping Center on Jefferson Road.
