The Friends of the Bellaire Library will hold their Fall Book Sale Saturday, October 14.

The Friends of the Bellaire Library (FOTBL) is pleased to announce the Fall Book Sale to be held on Saturday, October 14th, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m, in the Bellaire Library parking lot, 5111 Jessamine in Bellaire. 

The sale, held twice annually, is the major fundraiser for the Friends and proceeds benefit the City of Bellaire’s Library. “This is a great way to support the Library’s efforts and we hope that our neighbors come out and find Great Books at Great Prices.” says President of the Friends of the Bellaire Library Ali Septimus. Hardbacks are $1; Paperbacks are $0.50; & Children’s books are only $0.25! 

Mary Alford Cohrs, Library Director, is delighted that students from the Bellaire and Lamar Leading Ladies, National Honor Society of Bellaire High School and Houston Area Youth Council on Service will be volunteering to help set up in the morning and return in the afternoon to help clean up and prepare for the next sale. “These students from all three service organizations have helped us for years and they have made a huge difference in helping the sale go smoothly. We can't do it with them.” she says.
