Spencer Rotary Club Book Sale November 5-8 at Clay County Regional Events Center 

The Spencer Rotary Club will hold their 2020 Book Sale November 5-8 this year.

Co-Chair Bob Goeken says, precautions are being taken to help keep the event safe.  "You know, with COVID, we're taking all the safety precautions we can.  We've actually spread our aisles and spread out tables out , we have 12 feet between tables .  Masks will be required and gloves will be available, but I think with the social distancing and the spreading out of all of our books a little bit, our aisles if you will, will be a good way of doing it."

He adds that the sale will get underway Thursday evening at the Clay County Regional Events Center.  "We'll have our First Choice Party this Thursday, November 5th from 5:30 to 7:30.  The people that come obviously will have first choice of all the books and that's our opening night.  On Friday our hours are 10 am to 7 pm, and Saturday, again, we're 10 to 7, and then Sunday we finish up noon to 4 pm on that Sunday."

Some 30,000 books will be for sale at the event.

NOTE:  The price of books goes down throughout the sale, children's books will be free on Saturday and Sunday.
