50,000+ books: Friends of the Library used book sale – KFYR-TV

BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) – The Bismarck Veterans Memorial Library opened its doors today for the first used book sale in over a year and a half.

The money made goes to the Friends of the Library organization, which helps to support the library, its programs, and funding for projects.

The sale is open through Saturday in the library’s lower level. The sale hours are:
