The Friends Of Sandy Springs Library (FOSSL) have opened the Friends Bookstore at the library on Mount Vernon Highway.

The bookstore is open Monday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sunday, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The 400-square-foot bookstore has room to sell 3,800 used books at low prices, from 50 cents to $6. People from the community donate the books.

All money raised by the book sales goes to fund children’s programs, new books and projects like reupholstering library chairs for the Sandy Springs library.

Book donations and additional volunteers are needed. Contact Janet Greene at (770) 390-9418 or e-mail
