Library book sale benefits community


by Patrick Manning

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- If you're looking for some good old-fashioned entertainment you may want to head to the Marathon County library.

The next few days the Friends of the Marathon County library are putting on the Giant book sale.

Thousands of new and used books and other items are listed at cheap prices. And all the proceeds go to something good.

"Well I hope that they realize that everything we do up here, benefits the library. And that in turn benefits the community. It's a way to recycle library books, or your books, magazines, we've also got videos, books on tape," says Gail Cain, volunteer with Friends of the Library.

All money raised goes to new programs for the library, including children's reading programs.
