BRAINERD — The Friends of the Brainerd Public Library will hold their Big Fall Book Sale from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Sept. 29-30, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, at the former MarJon’s store location near JoAnn Fabrics in the Westgate Mall in Brainerd/Baxter.

There will be limited entry Thursday to allow for comfortable browsing, and no strollers will be allowed at that time. Booksellers are welcome after noon Friday.

The sale will include a huge selection of gently used hardcover and paperback books, audiobooks, music CDs and DVDs. Most adult books are priced at 50 cents each, and most children’s books are 25 cents. Premium books and special collector’s items are priced as marked.

All items for the Friends of the Brainerd Public Library sales are received as donations from community members or items withdrawn from the Brainerd Public Library, and all funds raised support the Friends of the Brainerd Public Library to bring programs and projects to the library every year.

Past projects have included new shelving and furniture, the Book Club in a Bag collection, Brown Bag Author Series and other author and artist visits, incentives for the Summer Reading Program and much more.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
