The Pearl Public Library's September programming highlights include a huge, winning combination!
It’s a bargain hunter’s dream and happens every year at the Pearl Public Library! The Friends of the Pearl Library’s big, annual book sale is Friday, Sept. 23 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 24 from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. All proceeds benefit the Friends’ group, which support the library through volunteering, purchasing books and equipment and sponsoring programs for all ages.
Among the many gems of this year’s book sale are Big Band Era and wartime music CDs, wartime DVDs and tons of cookbooks.
Book sale prices range from .25 cents to $5.00. Near the end of the book sale on Saturday, all the leftover items will be on a special, bag-for-a-buck, bargain. It’s everything you can fit into a grocery bag for $1.
This year, to help advertise the book sale, a beautifully designed banner, by AlphaGraphics of Pearl, will be displayed in front of the library.
Bryce Yelverton, of Clinton, was diagnosed in December 2013 with Hodgkin Lymphoma Stage 2B, a blood cancer. During a free, National Blood Cancer Awareness Month program at the Pearl Public Library, Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 6 p.m.,,Yelverton will share his story and talk about the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
“I love being able to talk about my story,” said Yelverton, a government relations consultant with Yelverton Consulting in Jackson. “Most people think that cancer just means death, but the more you tell your story of your trials, the less formidable it is. It’s a way to humanize things.”
After a series of chemo and radiation treatments, Bryce was declared in remission in May 2014. Armed with Christian strength and the support of family and friends, Yelverton had the help he needed to fight the disease. He learned that the best way to combat cancer is not to let it be the overwhelming giant that silence and private suffering can make it. Cancer doesn’t have to mean the end.
WOW! You don't want to miss either one of these events! As always, all programs are free to the public!
We'll see you there!
