Great bargains on new and gently used books can be found at the Friends of Davie County Public Library book sale this weekend. Held every spring and fall, the book sales are the volunteer organization’s main fundraiser. The book sale is located at Davie County Public Library, 371 N. Main St. Mocksville. Book sale organizers are happy to report no price increase for books in 2012.
