Time for the annual Friends of the Library Frank B. Armstrong Memorial Book Sale

A chance to stock up for summer reading? A bag of treasures for $5? A chance to support the NCSU Libraries too?

It must be spring. Time for the Friends of the Library annual Frank B. Armstrong Memorial Book Sale on the Brickyard. The 2013 book sale will be held Monday, April 22, through Friday, April 26.

Each year for the last twenty-three years, the Friends of the Library has held a book sale to generate funds to support the Libraries’ mission. Each event is the culmination of hundreds of hours of work by volunteers from the Friends, the Libraries staff, and others. It’s a great way to recycle books through the community and to support library services and collections–giving the NCSU Libraries that extra boost needed to help us remain a world-class resource for NC State.
