The new Friends of the Library bookstore on Forsyth Road is now open.

MACON, Ga. (41NBC/WMGT) — Those who love to read don’t have to wait for the next Friends of the Library Book Sale.

The new Friends of the Library bookstore on Forsyth Road is now open.

Friends of the Library president Darlene Greer says the organization wanted to give the community a chance to buy used books every day in addition to its annual book sale.

“We wanted to do more than once or twice a year, and a lot of people like that, they like going into sales and buying a bunch, but other people just need a book this week or next week. and we want to fill that void,” she said. “We’ve worked and worked and worked, and just seeing people here is just wonderful.”

According to Wendy Cassidy, member of the board of directors, this is a new adventure for the Friends of the Library.

“We’ve raised money for libraries over that 50-year period, and we’ve raised over $2.5 million, but that’s from our annual and semi-annual book sales, which we’re known for, but it gives us a whole different market of people who like to have books all year round, not just twice a year on sale.

All proceeds from the bookstore will be donated to the Middle Georgia Regional Library.

The Friends of the Library bookstore will be open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Wednesdays and Fridays from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
