CRESTVIEW — The Friends of the Library will have a book sale April 5-7 at the Crestview Public Library.



A preview sale for $2 admission — free to Friends members — is 5-8 p.m. April 5; the regular event is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 6 and 7. All proceeds provide new books and materials to the Crestview Library.



"We going to have a load of large-print (used) books to choose from, including children's books and religious fiction," along with CDs and DVDs, event organizer Dot Moxcey said.  



This is one of the top-earning fundraising events for the Friends of the Library, which assists in funding many library programs, including the First Tuesday lecture series.   



"We usually bring in over $3,000 (from this event) every year," Moxcey said.



Another book sale is set for Oct. 4-6.
