Temple Public Library’s Labor Day Book Sale Returns Aug 28 to 31
The sale that gets me into trouble every summer is finally here, as the Friends of the Temple Public Library once again host the Labor Day Used Book Sale.
Members of the Friends were able to get a sneak peek at what's for sale Tuesday, August 27 beginning at 2 pm. Memberships are available at the door, so if you want to join up and get first dibs on the great books on display, you have until the library closes at 8 PM.
The sale opens to the public beginning Wednesday, August 28 from 10 AM to 8 PM. The same hours apply to Thursday, August 29. Friday, August 30, you can browse the books from 10 AM to 5 PM, and Saturday's hours are 10 AM to 4 PM.
The Temple Public Library is located at 100 W. Adams Ave. in Temple. If you've never been, you really should visit. Temple's library is one of the absolute best in Central Texas, with a wide variety of books of all genres and great programs for families and kids. They also have a room containing some interesting artifacts from Temple's history and a genealogy center.
So, why does this sale get me into trouble every year? Because I go intending to just look and MAYBE pick up a book or two, but I end up taking home a box full of books and getting dirty looks from the stacks of unread books already waiting their turn on my nightstand. (Yes, the stacks give me looks. You avid readers know that feeling.)
Norma Swaim, President of the Friends of the Library, joined Wes Adams live in the US 105 studio Tuesday to share details about the sale and talk a little about it's over 30 year history. Check out that interview in the video below.
