The Friends of the Lafayette Public Library Spring Book Sale will be Wednesday through Saturday at the Heymann Convention Center Ballroom. Friends Night (for Friends members only; memberships may be purchased at the door) will be 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday. Public sales are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
Books will be priced by the inch: paperbacks are 50 cents an inch, hardbacks $1. The money helps provide supplemental funding to the Lafayette Public Library System and helps pay for projects not covered by the Library’s regular budget.
In addition, the Friends’ Silent Auction will be ongoing through April 4 at the South Regional Library at 6101 Johnston St.
