Jefferson County Public Library Foundation (JCPLF) will host its annual Fall Whale of a Used Book Sale at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds, Oct. 26 through 29. The sale, which has more than a 20-year history in the community, offers the book-buying public more than 80,000 books at prices starting at 50 cents.

“The funds generated by the Whale Sale will help support the Library’s STEM/STEAM initiatives, early childhood literacy and the hugely popular Summer Reading program,” said JCPL Executive Director Pam Nissler.

JCPLF is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to supporting the programs of Jefferson County Public Library through advocacy and fundraising.
