Books and their friends
Volunteers Carol Frazier, center, of Mechanicsville and her daughter, Olivia, 14, sort through and organize books Saturday in the children’s books pavilion at the St. Mary’s County Fairgrounds in preparation for this weekend’s Friends of the Library Book Sale. With the help of more than 50 volunteers, according to volunteer Mary Fletcher, the transfer of more than 100,000 books from the Leonardtown library to the fairgrounds was done in barely two hours. The sale will be open to members of Friends of the Library on Friday from 1 to 8 p.m. and then to the public on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 3 p.m.
