Bellaire Public Library Book Sale

Yes, this is not a marketing post. This is a post demonstrating one way of giving back to the community and helping locally.

One of the local public libraries holds a book sale twice a year where they sell books both discarded by the library and donated by the community. I attended a sale this weekend, and I spent more than I should have, but that’s a good thing (for the library). These are such great events to support. You never know what you will find at a free-for-all event like this, where the books are all just lumped together.

I really like the fact that the books being sold at a sale like this are being given an extra life. These items are not ending up in landfills somewhere. At the same time, the money is benefiting the local library, which is always a great asset for the families, kids and communities that utilize the library.

I encourage you to look for other sales like these and take part in any way you can. These sales can always use volunteers, and of course they can always benefit from donations of books, music and movies.
