BAY CITY, MI – Don’t worry if you run out of fresh books to read because you finished your reading list during the pandemic. Bay County’s annual Used Book Sale returns for its 46th year, allowing book enthusiasts to stock up on a wide variety of different materials.
The Friends of the Bay County Libraries organization plans to fill the ice rink at Bay County Civic Arena, 4231 Shrestha Drive in Bay City, with thousands of items such as old bestsellers, special interest, materials for kids, reference sources, magazines, CDs, audiobooks and DVDs. The sale will take place from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday August 12, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday August 13 and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday August 14.
All items have a travel price, according to Friends of the Bay County Library, with books ranging from 50 cents to $ 2. All-day Saturday customs clearance allows customers to fill a box or bag with any item for $ 4. Everything is grouped by category during the sale.
A new addition this year is purchasable book bags to help transport literary mail. The Bay County Library System will have a booth Thursday and Friday where bags can be purchased for $ 1.
Anyone who stops by the kiosk can register to win a $ 50 Meijer gift card. Bay County residents who register for a first BCLS Library Card during the sale will receive a book bag with the gift card entry (ID showing your address is required). The winner of the gift card will be contacted to arrange pickup after the draw on Monday August 16.
