Blount County Library, Lower Level
Amazing quarterly book sales are held in January, April, July, and October! Recent sales have offered around 50,000 books! One of the perks of being a member of the Friends is early access to the sale the day before it’s opened to the public.

January 2015 Collectible Book List
available at this book sale.The selection of books is excellent, and many are in mint condition. There are books for everyone and they’re well-organized for easy browsing. The book sale depends on donations, and each one seems to get bigger and better than before.
If you love to read, if you love books, this is a Book Bargain Event you cannot miss. The best selections go fast, so plan to attend as a BCFOL member to get the “preview” sale and grab the best.
Proceeds from your membership and your purchases support the Library!
Named the BOOK WORM, and representing the Blount County Friends of the Library, the float was once again decorated and organized by Lee and Harry Downey. Stacked high with around 1000 children’s books of all ages, candy cane tied book marks with the 2015 Library book sale dates, a tree, a bucket full of donated candy for tossing, and a Mrs. Claus, the Book Worm was ready to go!
The WALKERS and candy tossers are as many BCFOL Friends, relatives and friends that are willing to hand out books and bookmarks along the 2+ mile parade route, and toss out candy from the float to the crowds. This year the Book Worm even made The Maryville Times.
Many thanks go out to all who support the Book Worm - it definitely wouldn't exist without you!
Not just a month long effort, it is an ongoing effort all year long to prepare for the parade. Volunteers are always needed. Contact Lee Downey at 865-809-5787 for more information.
What is a book? Why, it's a front and back cover; a spine; and pages of adventure, romance, mystery, knowledge, and whatever else the author deems to include. Or not.
|The Friends of the Library book discussion group has been reading some interesting books. For December we read a fun Fannie Flagg book titled “The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion”. On the schedule for January is a novel, “Orphan Train, by Christina Baker Kline, and in February “The Signature of All Things” by Elizabeth Gilbert. This group meets the second Wednesday of each month at 10:15 in the board room at the library and new members are welcome.|
