Friends of the Library to host annual Book Sale

Each year, thousands of affordable books can be found at the Friends of the Library’s book sale.


Friends of the Natchitoches Parish Library (FONPL) annual Book Sale will be back in just a few weeks. Visitors can expect to find thousands of books for sale in March, including children’s books, adult fiction, cookbooks, travel, religion, business, arts and crafts, music and more. The Book Sale is the FONPL’s most important fundraiser of the year. Proceeds will help to provide cultural, educational and entertaining programs to benefit the community throughout the year at the Natchitoches Parish Library (NPL).

The FONPL Book Sale will take place at the MLK Center, 660 Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. The sale will run Thursday and Friday, March 19 and 20, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, March 21, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The FONPL is a 501(c)(3) organization that works to support and enrich the capabilities, resources, and services of the NPL through fundraising and advocacy efforts that benefit the community. The FONPL is dedicated to enhancing the programs and resources of the NPL’s library branches. Funds raised by the FONPL are used to meet library needs not met through the traditional Natchitoches Parish Library budget. Funding support includes, but is not limited to, the purchase of special equipment and sponsorship of special, thematic library programs.

Besides the many genres of books that can be found at the sale, there will also be boxed and bagged specials.
