NATCHITOCHES— Book lovers and bargain hunters came out in mass when the Friends of the Natchitoches Parish Library hosted their annual book sale last week. Held at Terrell Brother’s Furniture store, the book sale took place March 17 & 18 from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. and March 19 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Shoppers found thousands of books for sale, including children’s books, adult fiction, cookbooks, and books about travel, religion, business, arts and crafts, music and more. The Book Sale is the Friends’ most important fundraiser of the year, and proceeds will help to provide many cultural and literary programs to benefit the community. This year’s book sale was a big success, raising more than $3,200 and more importantly getting thousands of books into the hands of hundreds of people. The Friends would like to thank M&M Pharmacy for their generous donation of boxes, NSU’s Presidents Leadership Program, and Red River On Campus for volunteering their valuable time. But most importantly, the Friends would like to thank everyone in the community who attended the book sale for their donations.
