NORTH ANDOVER – Thousands of used books will be on sale at the Stevens Memorial Library this weekend.
Organized by the Friends of the Stevens Memorial Library, the sale will feature an estimated 10,000 items, including books, DVDs and CDs. The sale will take place in the library’s community room Friday, 4 to 7 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 3 p.m.
Volunteers from the Friends began setting up for the sale Tuesday. Arthur Larson and Brooke Arakelian, coordinators of the sale, along with about 50 volunteers, have been hard at work organizing the books into various categories.
For example, if a customer wants to buy a John Grisham novel, all he or she needs to do is go to the non-fiction section, look under G and check out the selections.
Those who attend the sale Saturday dressed in a costume will be entitled to a children’s book. On Sunday, customers can fill a bag with books and pay $5 for the whole load.
The Friends of the Stevens Memorial Library provide museum passes and pay for special programs for the library, located at 345 Main St.
