CRESWELL, Ore. — The Creswell Book Sale wrapped up Sunday. The book sale is a long-time tradition that predates the existing library.
The money from the weekend sale goes back into library needs and operations. Some books sold for as little as $1 to $2. There were also magazines, CDs and DVDs for sale.
Some readers said even though new technology is always popping up, nothing can replace a good old-fashioned book.
“I prefer books. I do have a Kindle and it’s nice when I’m traveling. I went by train last summer and it was nice not to have to carry books, but I really like the feel of a book,” says Creswell Library Chairwoman Elyse Grau.
Most of the books were donated for the sale. The next sale is May 9 and 10 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
