Friends Of King Family Library host two-day great big box book sale

SEVIERVILLE, TN - Due to a splendid amount of good fortune, the Friends of King Family Library (FoKFL) have become the recipient of almost an entire collection of books and other materials from the Mary E. Tippitt Memorial Public Library in Townsend. With this bounty in hand, the FoKFL will host a two-day Great Big $5 Box Book Sale on October 11 & 12 from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm at the SCPLS King Family Library, 408 High Street in Sevierville.

Thanks to the generous donation from the unfortunate closing of the Mary E. Tippitt Memorial Public Library in Townsend, almost 20,000 books, audiobooks and video materials will be arriving in early/mid October at the King Family Library. A Great Big $5 Box Sale has been scheduled to help these books and other materials find a new home. Any materials that can be used in the library system will be pulled prior to the Great Big Box Sale but a huge selection of materials will remain for the sale. You are invited to bring your own box or use one of the boxes provided and fill it up to your heart’s content. The Friends will accept cash only during the Great Big $5 Box Book Sale. All proceeds will go to support programs and services at the King Family Library that the Friends currently support.

This opportunity would not have been possible without the generosity of the entire Mary E. Tippitt Family. The Sevier County Public Library System and Friends of King Family Library are overwhelmed with the thoughtfulness and benevolence of the Tippitt Family to choose the SCPLS to be the recipient of such bounty and offer a heartfelt thank you for the wonderful donation.
