An annual Memorial Day tradition plays out May 26 and 27 in Manzanita, as the North Tillamook Library hosts its book sale featuring thousands of donated books at two locations, the Hoffman Center for the Arts, 549 Laneda Ave. and Pine Grove Community House three blocks away at 225 Laneda.

The sale begins Friday evening, May 26, from 5 to 7 p.m. in which members of the Friends of the Library get first crack at this year’s selection. If you are not a member, have no fears. Tickets for a pre-sale evening are $10 for an individual membership and $15 for a family. On Saturday, May 27, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the general public is invited to comb the shelves and tables for good deals on gently used books.

The book sale, held every year Memorial Day weekend, is the major fundraiser for the North Tillamook County Friends for maintenance to the North Tillamook Library in Manzanita.
