If you could buy a hard-cover novel by John Grisham or Danielle Steele (or Tom Clancy or Nora Roberts) for $1, would you?

If the answer’s yes, a one-day sale of gently used books by popular authors is for you. Books that often cost $20 or more when new will be on sale for $1 or less at the Seymour Public Library from 10 to 6 p.m. Friday, October 25.

This is an opportunity for people to stock up on their favorite popular authors, said Lucy Henighan, co-chair of Friends of Sevier County Library System’s used book sale committee. “We hope lots of people will come out and take advantage of the bargains at our book sale.”

Hard-cover books will cost $1 and paperbacks, 50 cents. Children’s books will also be on sale for 50 cents.

The books have been donated to the library or taken off library shelves. The sale will benefit Friends of Sevier County Library System. Proceeds will be split equally among the Friends groups at the system’s three libraries in Seymour, Kodak and King Family Library in Sevierville.

Seymour Public Library is at 137 West Macon Lane in Seymour. For more information, call the library at 573-0728.
