HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — The Friends of the Library will conduct a two-day used book sale at the Cabell County Public Library on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 5 and 6.

The sale will feature gently used books, magazines, records and tapes, CDs and DVDs. Shoppers who purchase $20 worth of books will earn a “ Book Buck,” a coupon worth $1 at the group’s next sale in February.

Proceeds from the sale, one of three conducted by the Friends of the Library each year, will be used to improve library services and facilities.
