SPRING HOPE — The town library is set to sell hundreds of books during the month of August.

Popular novels in good condition from authors like John Grisham, Danielle Steel, Nora Roberts, Nicholas Sparks and many more will be sold for pennies on the dollar, said local librarian Michelle Kay.

Paperbacks will be available at the price of 10 for $1. Hardback books cost 25 cents, buy one, get one free. Prices vary for children’s books.

All money goes back into the library fund. Kay said selling the old books will provide revenue to purchase new ones.

“If I don’t do something, I’ll be out of room,” Kay said. “I’ve got two back rooms full of books.”

Monetary donations are always welcome, as are books, with the exception of damaged books and outdated reference books like encyclopedias.

“One thing I want people to know is we have so much more than books,” Kay said.

The library offers checkout of audiobooks as well as children’s and adult DVDs, with many new releases available.

The library has a dozen public use computers with internet access and can send faxes. Up to five pages are free, with a 25-cent-per-page charge for the sixth and subsequent pages.

Photocopies and printouts from patron computers cost 25 cents per page for black and white, and $1 per color page.

The Spring Hope Public Library is open from 1-5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.

Braswell Memorial Library, the Rocky Mount-based main library, manages the branch libraries in Spring Hope, Bailey, Middlesex and Whitakers.
