Books are stacked everywhere that have been donated, weeded and found for the Annual Book Fair to be held at the Altus Public Library on Friday and Saturday, April 15 and 16 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Along with the many books there are also CDs, DVDs and more that will be on sale this weekend. There will be books for all ages and interests so come early.
The sale is being held in conjunction with National Library Week, April 10-16. This is a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers.
