Blowout Bag Sale returns Aug. 6

Friends of the West Florida Public Library have this message:

Summertime, and the living is easy! You may have eased on through that stack of summer reading, but you can always restock at the Friends of West Florida Public Library’s $5 Blowout Bag Sale.

It’s simple: just pay $5 for a brown paper bag, and whatever books you can fit inside are yours to take home. Buy as many bags as you want and shop the day away!

The sale will take place Saturday, Aug. 6, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the WFPL Main Branch, 239 N Spring Street.

As always, your contributions will be used to support the West Florida Public Library’s efforts to build community and improve literacy.
