The Keizer Community Library is holding a fall book sale and program to benefit the all-volunteer operation.

The fall book sale will be Friday and Saturday, Oct. 5-6 at the Keizer Civic Center, 930 Chemawa Road NE. Hours on Friday are 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., with a bag sale from 3 p.m. – 4 p.m. More than 7,000 books will be available for purchase. Paperbacks are 50 cents each, hardbacks $1.25 each. Children’s books are 10 for $1, Harlequin romances are an even better deal at 12 for $1 and CDs and DVDs are $1 to $2 each.

And if that is just too expensive for your tastes, consider the bag sale on Saturday. If it fits, it goes for $3 per bag or $5 per box.

And a two-part fundraising program starts at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12, also at the Keizer Civic Center.

William Sullivan presents “DB Cooper and the Exploding Whale: Folk Heroes of the Northwest.”

Tickets are available for $10 each at the library, in the Keizer Heritage Center at 980 Chemawa Road NE. They will be $12 at the door.
Keizer has no public library, so the Keizer Community Library aims to fill in the gap and receives no direct government funding. It runs entirely on donations and volunteer labor. It’s a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
