All proceeds from the event will benefit library programs. The sidewalk sale is one of many activities in Carlinville that day, including the annual Spring Festival at the Macoupin County Historical Society.

“We have a lot of great books for sale,” said library director Hannah Miller. “They’re in really good shape, and there’s a lot of variety. We think there’s something for everyone, and we hope to see as many people here as possible.”

The Carlinville Public Library is located at 510 North Broad Street. For more information on the sidewalk sale, contact the library at 217-854-3505 or e-mail at
