Brazoria County
Brazoria County Library System
News Release
Wednesday, February 08, 2017

The Brazoria County Library System will hold its annual book sale Thursday evening, February 16 and all day Friday, February 17 and Saturday, February 18 at the Angleton Library, a branch of Brazoria County Library System, Angleton, Texas.

Starting Thursday, February 16 from 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., the public can find and buy books covering various topics for bargain prices.  Most books sell for one dollar or less.

The sale Friday, February 17 and Saturday, February 18 starts at 9:00 a.m. and will continue until 6:00 p.m. both days. The sale includes outdated items removed from library shelves over the past five months.  Donated books from the public are also available. These materials are gathered and sold to the public to dispose of the property. There will be fiction, nonfiction, videos and DVD’s, audiobooks and children’s books.

Due to the limited space at the Angleton Library, only a certain number of books can be displayed for sale at one time. As the books are sold the inventory constantly gets updated. For this reason, many people make multiple visits to the sale.

Money raised during the book sale is used by the County Library Foundation Board to benefit the branches. The majority of the money goes to support the summer reading programs at each branch library.

The Angleton Library is located at 401 E. Cedar Street.

Volunteers 16 years of age or older are also needed to help with the book sale set-up that takes place Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. until noon. 

For more information, call and ask for Lisa Gay. She can be reached at these numbers; in the west or central areas of the county, call 979-864-1505.  In the Brazosport area, dial 979-388-1505 and in the northern part of the county, call 281-756-1505. To volunteer, Call Mary Meyers at 979-297-5898.
