These bibliomaniacs’ weekends are fully booked!

These bibliomaniacs’ weekends are fully booked!
Cobb County sprung into the spring season as they kicked off their semi-annual book sale on March 15, 16, and 17. The sale’s commencement attracted bookworms of all ages through its wide array of book selections. 
The event, held at the Cobb County Civic center, took place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Shoppers excitedly entered the center with reusable bags and boxes, ready to fill them up with new tales. The building held a plethora of books, taking up spaces on the first and second floors. The alphabetically organized books made shopping manageable as bookworms scavenged through their favorite authors.
“[The Book Sale is] more than a large venue full of books and bargain hunters from the Cobb community and far beyond, the Book Sale brings people together with a tremendous sense of community spirit and unity,” Cobb Library Director Helen Poyer said. 
Beyond the books, the building also held magazines, VHSs, CDs, and records. The affordable prices compelled patrons to fill their boxes to the rim and pack their cars full.
“I enjoy how excited everyone is to come in and find books and media. It gives our patrons [a] way to find homes for their books and donate to us [as] they are repurchased. We also have a place to send dated library books which are no longer relevant in our collections. It is a win for all of us. A lot of homeschool families get basic supplies for their children at these sales,” program coordinator Patty Latch said. 
The event depleted the building of its media, and through incorporating various deals, sent shoppers off with new adventure-filled companions. In addition to leaving the event with cases of books, shoppers left knowing that their purchases will contribute to the libraries of the Cobb County Public Library System and will place books into the hands of those awaiting knowledge.
The diligent staff worked hard in providing books to those in need. The Cobb County Library system looks forward to the upcoming fall book sale as they promote education among all ages.
