“We will have all kinds of books and we are encouraging the public to donate books for the sale,” said Anne Thrower, president of the friends.
The Wall Room will have paperback books and the Little Room will have the hardcover books.
Deborah Knight, outreach coordinator said that most of the hardcover books they have in stock are almost like knew.
“That’s because most of the books are only read once,” she said.
Thrower said that residents can clean out their attics and bookshelves and bring the books in.
“We could always use children’s books,” she said.
The Richmond Senior High Honor Society will help with the sale on that Saturday.
Knight said that the only books that they won’t accept are outdated encyclopedias and textbooks.
“This is because people don’t purchase them and we end up being discarded,” she said.
The library welcomes magazines and videos as well.
“The teachers sometimes buy the magazines and they can use them for student collages,” Knight said.
The funds from the sale will go towards programs at area libraries.
“The sales have been successful overall and make low cost books available to the community,” Thrower said.
Knight said the set up of the rooms will begin on Oct. 21 and all day Oct. 22 and those with a large amount of books if they could wait until one of those days to bring them in.
“If anyone would like to volunteer to help us move books they are more than welcome,” she said.
Knight went on to say that the hours were extended this year so that those who don’t get up early will still have a chance.
“We are very excited about the sale,” she said.
