Memberships to the Friends of Ida Rupp Public Library group are still available before the annual book sale begins.
The book sale runs from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2, and from 9:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 3, in the community room of the library, 310 Madison St., Port Clinton.
Membership is $5, and Friends of the Ida Rupp Public Library can come to the members-only sale from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 1.
The group donates proceeds from this once-a-year sale to the library for necessary materials, supplies, equipment and improvements to help the library to continue providing excellent service to the community.
Recently, donations were used for the new plaza and statue in front of the library, making it an even more pleasant, inviting place to visit.
