Pittsboro, NC - The Fall Book Sale of the Friends of the Chatham Community Library (FotCCL) will be held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, September 26, 27 and 28, at the Library on the campus of Central Carolina Community College in Pittsboro.

Specific hours of the sale are Thursday, September 26, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Friday, September 27, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, September 28, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (closing time shortened from previous sales).

Admission is free, and purchases may be made by cash or check — but not credit cards.

The book sale will be held in the Holmes Family Meeting Room of the Chatham Community Library at 197 NC Highway 87 in Pittsboro, about a half mile north of US Highway 64 Business (West Street), where there is plenty of free parking.

On Thursday, the first day of the sale, most hard-cover books are $3; trade paperbacks are $2; and small paperbacks are 50¢. All audio books are $3; CDs and DVDs, $3; and all VHS tapes, $1. Children’s books are priced individually. In addition, sales of $200 or more earn a 20% discount.

On Friday, all books and materials are half price, and on Saturday customers may fill grocery bags with books and materials they choose for $5 each bag, with no limit on the number of bags.

More than 15,000 books and audio and video materials will be available for purchase. Each sale offers a completely fresh assortment of titles, all of which are organized by subject or format, and all of the materials are in good to excellent condition.

Book lovers from all over North Carolina travel to Pittsboro for the FotCCL book sales. These sales have earned a solid reputation because of the outstanding selection of books and audio-visual materials, all of which are donated by the generous residents of Chatham County.

A popular feature of the Friends sale is the "Collectors' Corner," which offers rare and special books for $15 and up. These books generally are priced at no more than half — and sometimes as low as a third — of their lowest value online.

A listing of these books may be found on the FotCCL website.

All proceeds from the book sale are used to benefit the Library for underwriting programs; purchasing needed books, materials and equipment; and improving its technology and services.

For more information about the book sale, as well as membership and volunteer opportunities, visit the FotCCL website or call the library at 919-545-8084.
