Attention, readers: It’s time to fortify your book stash.

The Friends of the Wichita Public Library is holding another $5-a-bag used book sale to benefit the library.

The sale is Wednesday through Saturday Sept. 20-23 in the auditorium on the third floor of the downtown branch, 223 S. Main.

The first evening of the sale – 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 20 – is for Friends of the Wichita Public Library members only. You may buy a membership that night.

The remainder of the sale is open to the public: Thursday, Sept. 21, 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Friday, Sept. 22, 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday, Sept. 23, 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

For $1, shoppers can buy a reusable Wichita Public Library bag, which holds about 22 hardcover books, and fill it for $5. Or, fill any standard plastic grocery bag for $5. (No large bags or totes.)

Proceeds from the sale benefit the Friends of the Wichita Public Library, a volunteer non-profit group that helps support the library system.
