Carnegie Library book sale draws a crowd
MARION -- When the Marion Carnegie Library Friends of The Library support group held its final book sale of the year over the weekend, there were plenty of eager shoppers lined up when the doors were opened for business, according to Library Director David Patton. "Even though this is the fourth and final sale of the year, I don't think any of us were expecting such a large crowd waiting for us to let in this morning," he said. "We had over 40 shoppers pour into this room. Then, when you factor in staff and Friends volunteers, we ended up with over 50 of us and it was so full in here that you could hardly move within minutes of the sale starting."
