67th annual booksale at McKinley HS starts Saturday

Friends of the Library of Hawaii holds its annual book sale starting this weekend.

The sale, also known as the McKinley Book Sale, starts Saturday, June 21, at McKinley High School and will be open for nine days. Members get a special preview Friday night.

In addition to books, paintings and other knick-knacks will be available as the island tradition continues in its 67th year.

“This sale alone will raise over $200,000 and that goes to those reading programs that happen at the libraries,” said Byrde Cestare, Friends of the Library of Hawaii. “The summer reading program last year had over 30,000 people reading over 300,000 books.”

Since 1879, Friends of the Library of Hawaii has worked to increase the facilities and the extension of services of free public libraries in Hawaii.
