The books are lined on tables for perusing; jigsaw puzzles are piled in the back of the room; and CDs and DVDs are in place, ready for purchase.
“It was time,” Clyde-Savannah Library Director Elizabeth Bowlby said about the library’s first book sale since the COVID-19 pandemic hit. “With the vaccines and the nicer weather, and I think people are now used to the masks and the social distancing. Our goal is to put these books in the hands of readers.”
With its sale that runs now through Saturday, Clyde-Savannah is the first of many local libraries to resume book sales, a source of extra revenue as well as a way for avid readers to fill their own bookshelves. All four area counties have libraries that will be hosting sales in the coming months.
