Friends of the Library, a volunteer group that operates the nonprofit bookstore Twice Sold Tales, will host the “$5 to Fill a Bag” Book Sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23, in the Community Room at the Dickinson Area Public Library. Additionally, all books at the Twice Sold Tales bookstore will be half price during that time. The bookstore is located at 128 Second St. W. — a short walk from the library.
Friends of the Library volunteer Starla Hecker said all proceeds will benefit the library.
“We raise money for the programs at the library that have to do with the kids. Like if there’s a summer or winter reading program, we supply prizes and all the little stuff they need to run their programs,” Hecker said. “It’s kind of like what they don’t have money for in their budget, Friends of the Library kicks in from this bookstore. People around town shop here. They also clean out their closets and bring books to us. So this is what we live on, is people’s donations. It is completely run by volunteers.”
Friends of the Library includes a staff of 20 volunteers and 15 backups who work
