February 8 • 10:00 am4:00 pm


February is Black History Month. How about celebrating with new or classic fiction and nonfiction by African-American authors? And, though we’re still a few months away from winter’s final frost, February also is a great time to gather ideas and tips for your 2020 gardening and landscaping plans! Come on by. Books Among Friends may have just what you’re seeking, as well as other interesting new items for your home collection.

Book sale proceeds go to the Friends of the Durham Library, a 36-year-old nonprofit that helps Durham County Library fund programs, services, and materials. Its storefront shop, Books Among Friends, is inside Northgate in Suite 252. Enter the mall at entrance 8 near Foot Locker, turn left, and head down to the last storefront on the left before you reach the former Sears.
