Book sale supporting library planned aboard ship

Published:

MUSEKGON, Mich. (AP) -- An annual book sale to support a western Michigan library is taking place in a different location this year -- aboard a ship.

The Friends of the Hackley Public Library event runs 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and Saturday at USS LST 393 Veterans Museum. The Muskegon Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1eaydXH ) it's the first time the sale has been held aboard the landing ship tank, which is docked in Muskegon.

The sale, which usually includes thousands of used books, is open to the public.

Martha Ferriby, director of Hackley Public Library, says holding the sale aboard the ship makes it "kind of fun" and she's grateful about the opportunity. Money raised goes toward Hackley Public Library's meeting rooms, including lights, sound systems and chairs.

A preview event is Thursday.
