WACO, TX (KXXV) -

The Friends of the Waco-McLennan County Library will host its annual Mini Book Sale on June 8 and June 9 at the West Waco Library.

The book sale will feature fiction books and cookbooks sold as $1 per paperback book and $2 per trade paperback and hardcover book.

This year the sale will also feature a new pricing system for children’s books. Instead of individual pricing, the sale will charge $2 per inch for children’s books stacked up. According to the Friends of Waco-McLennan County Library, this sale is meant for kids to practice their math skills while seeing how many books they can pack per inch.

Jennifer Good, President of the Friends of Waco-McLennan County Library, states that “The Friends of Waco-McLennan County Library want to be able to provide children with access to reading material in a friendly, light-hearted manner.”

Good also states that as many as 50 percent of children in McLennan County do not own a book of their own.

Proceeds from the Mini Book Sale will help supplement new books, equipment, and youth and summer programs.

The book sale is from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., June 8 and 9, at 5301 Bosque Blvd.
