Need to Get Rid of Books, But They Are Too Good to Trash?

Do you have books that you are unsure on what to do with, but would like to find them a new home? Here is your chance...
Swiss philosopher and poet Henri Frederic Amiel once said, “Everything you need for better future and success has already been written. And guess what? All you have to do is go to the library.”  Nearly 200 years later, his words still ring true, particularly for the 34,563 patrons of the La Vergne Public Library.

On Saturday, May 18 between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., the library is hosting its biannual book sale so patrons will be able not just to take books home, but to keep them.

“We have books that include how-to instructions on gardening and cooking, books about computer operations, children’s books, romance novels, mysteries, CDs, DVDs, and much more,” said Library Director Donna Bebout. “We encourage our local readers to stop by to find books that will – like the Swiss poet and philosopher says – inspire success.”

Proceeds from the sale go toward program development, including summer reading and story time. Patrons are asked to make donations in the amount they feel would be appropriate for the number of books they purchase.


Drop Books off Now:

In the meantime, you can drop books off NOW! The La Vergne Public Library accepts book donations throughout the year for the book sale. You may drop them off at the library anytime the library is open.
