CRESTVIEW — Okaloosa County will have a one-time surplus book sale 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at the former county extension office on Hill Drive.

The Okaloosa County Public Library Cooperative — which represents six county libraries, including Fort Walton Beach, Niceville and Crestview — organized the sale.

“All of the books (and items) were from the bookmobile program,” cooperative coordinator Vicky Stever said. “For aficionados of used hardcover books, this will be the place to be.”

The office building previously stored titles for the bookmobile, which once traveled throughout Okaloosa until the county ended the program in 2011 due to budget cuts, Stever said.

The cooperative plans to sell thousands of titles for all ages.

“We have a large selection of large-print books for adults,” Stever said.

“They are going to be priced to sell … we are going to have some hardcover books as low as 50 cents,” she said.
