The Friends of the Library held their annual book sale at the Superior public library. The proceeds go towards the upkeep of the building and supports other children programs.

Craig Scherf, an executive board member of the Friends of the Library said the book sale helps bring readers together. “We regard it not only as a fundraiser but also a community event,” Scherf said. “Because we are recycling those things back, to those people who probably have given, a lot of them.”

Craig Scherf also said some of the best selling books people bought at the sale were history, cook books, year books and fiction. “Non-fiction tends to sell better, but given the price on those, current fiction is real popular.” Scherf said. “It’s not surprising those have been pretty strong.”

The Friends of the Library book sale extends more than books people could buy. There were also several CD’s, books on tape, and even vintage magazines and newspapers people could buy.

If people didn’t get a chance to come on down to the Superior Public Library on Friday, don’t worry because its happening again Saturday. The book sale will go from 10:00am-2:00pm Saturday, and you can name your own price on items in the large meeting room.
