In addition, puzzles are 50 cents and gift books are only 25 cents each.“A great variety of genres is being offered: adult fiction arranged alphabetically by author, nonfiction, biography, cookbooks, Christmas and craft sections, religion, classics, and children’s selections,” Lydia Fowlkes, who is with Friends of the Library, said.The books and puzzles are provided through donations from the public and discards from the county libraries. Donations are accepted year-round at the Borger library except the week preceding a sale.
