The Friends of Rockport Public Library will hold their giant annual book sale from Thursday, July 13, through Sunday, July 16 at the Midcoast Recreation Center on Route 90 in Rockport.

The times for the book sale are:

Thursday, July 13, 5 to 7 p.m. (Members only sale, sign up at the door)

Friday, July 14, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Saturday, July 15, 8 a.m. to noon and box sale from 1 to 3 p.m.

Sunday, July 16, 8 to 11 a.m. (Free books)

The Friends of Rockport Public Library's giant three-day book sale will feature thousands of assorted books — plus CDs, DVDs, audio books, and more — on 100 tables! The Friends would like to thank all our book sorters, pricing gurus, haulers, stackers, and of course the many people who donate books all year long.

All of the funds raised will be donated directly to the Rockport Public Library. The funds are used to purchase new books, for children and adult programs and supplies, multimedia resources, as well as technology and equipment for the library.
