Buy low-priced children’s books Saturday

April 02, 2014

The Center for Children’s Literature will hold a spring book sale from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 5, in the Hedberg Library.

The sale will feature children’s and young adult books at low prices. Hardcover books cost $3 each, and paperbacks cost $1 each.

The book sale supports Carthage’s Center for Children’s Literature, a nationally recognized collection of more than 25,000 titles meant to instill a love of reading in children. Other than reading material, the center organizes workshops, reading programs and lectures from well-known authors to encourage children to read.

All books being sold are either directly from the publishers or were once a part of Carthage’s collection of books.  All proceeds from the book sale will allow Carthage to expand its collection and to fund author visits to the campus.
