Library’s Friends to hold Annual Book Sale


Some say there is no greater time to be had than with a good book… now imagine how great a time you could have with 10, 20, or even 30! The Friends of the Natchitoches Parish Library’s (FONPL) annual book sale will be held at the Natchitoches Arts Center at 716 Second St. on March 2-4. The hours for the book sale will be Thursday and Friday, 11am-6pm and Saturday, 9am-2pm.

Shoppers can expect to find 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 FONPL’s most important fundraiser of the year, and proceeds will help to provide many cultural, educational, and entertaining programs to benefit the community. Last year’s book sale was a big success, raising more than $3,200, and more importantly, getting thousands of books into the hands of community members.

The FONPL is a 501(c)(3) organization that works to support and enrich the capabilities, resources, and services of the Natchitoches Parish Library (NPL) through fundraising and advocacy efforts that benefit the community. The FONPL is dedicated to enhancing the programs and resources of our libraries. Funds raised by the FONPL are used to meet library needs not met through the traditional Natchitoches Parish Library budget. Funding support includes, but is not limited to, the purchase of special equipment and sponsorship of special, thematic library programs.
