Literacy is one of the best predictors of a child’s future success. And, consistent access to books is absolutely necessary for a child to become both an engaged and capable reader.
Current statistics on the subject suggest that 100 age-appropriate titles at a minimum should be available in each home. But, high quality books can be expensive!
That’s why we are excited for the annual Friends of the Hockessin Library Used Book Sale in Hockessin, Delaware. The annual sale features tens of thousands of books in every genre, including thousands and thousands of wonderful children’s books for all ages at bargain prices.
A preview will be held on Thursday, January 28th from 5-9pm. This is for Friends members only and memberships will be available at the door for just $10. Numbered admission tickets will be available starting at 2 pm.
The General Sale is open to the public with no admission fee. Dates and times include:
- January 29, Friday 9am-9pm
- January 30, Saturday 9am-5pm
- January 31, Sunday 9am-3pm
The sale will be held at the Hockessin Memorial Fire Hall, located at the junction of Lancaster Pike and Yorklyn Road in Hockessin, Delaware.
