LITTLE ELM — Author, humorist, public speaker and radio personality Garrison Keillor, recently-retired host of the widely-syndicated “A Prairie Home Companion,” once said, “A book is a gift you can open again and again.”


Anyone looking for the right book at the right price to use as a gift this holiday season should make note of the two-day book sale coming to the Little Elm Public Library, hosted by the Little Elm Friends of the Library, according to Lynette Roberson, Library Manager.


The library occupies the first floor of Little Elm’s Town Hall, 100 West Eldorado Parkway. Books will go on sale starting on Friday, Oct. 6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The sale continues on Saturday, Oct. 7 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.


All categories and genres of books are included in the sale. Titles in children’s and young adult books will be available, but these will likely to be the first to go. Book collectors may also come across those hard-to-find publications among the sale stacks.


“The Friends haven’t held a book sale in quite a while, and we’re really excited about this one,” said Roberson. “We’ve gotten a lot of great buzz about it online; the community appears excited, too.”


Audiobooks and music recorded on CDs will be part of the sale, as will DVDs of popular movies. Shoppers should come early on either day to take advantage of the selections.


Volunteers with the Friends will be accepting cash or checks for the items, but are not equipped to accept credit or debit cards. The sale is free to attend.


The Little Elm Friends of the Library will use the proceeds from the sale to purchase new materials. The Friends also support library programming with their annual Trivia Night. Held each year in late winter, Trivia Night is among the Friends’ largest and most popular fund-raising events.
