The Maryville College Library is hosting its annual Backdoor Book Sale during Homecoming weekend, Saturday, Oct. 25 from 10 a.m. to until 2 p.m. at the back of Thaw Hall on the College campus.

“In addition to former library books and donated books on various topics, many classical, pop, and world music LP records will be for sale, just as record-players are becoming available again!” said Dori May, acquisitions librarian. “All items are at very low prices. We welcome the community and alumni to attend the sale.”

Proceeds from the sale are used to purchase new library books.
