Friends of the Brown Library event set for weekend

Published 1:27am Thursday, April 18, 2013

When the new Saturday Market season begins Saturday, market-goers will be able to buy more than produce, jams, jellies and baked goods. Used books will be available.

While many folks know about the Friends of the Brown Library’s annual book sale in January to benefit Brown Library, fewer folks know the nonprofit organization conducts book sales during the Saturday Market season which runs from April through October. The book sale returns to the Washington waterfront for its sixth year.

So far, the Friends of the Brown Library has taken in $8,251.64 from its Saturday Market sales. For the upcoming season, prices remain at $2 for a hardcover book, $1 for a quality paperback and other paperbacks for 50 cents each.
