Frank B. Armstrong Memorial Book Sale

The 27th annual Frank B. Memorial Book Sale will be held on Monday, April 8 through Friday, April 12 on the Brickyard outside D. H. Hill Library.  The book sale generates funds to support the NCSU Libraries’ mission. Each event is the culmination of hundreds of hours of work by volunteers from the Friends, the Libraries staff and others. It’s a great way to recycle your unneeded books and to support library services and collections--giving NCSU Libraries that extra boost needed to help the NCSU Libraries remain a world-class resource for the University.

The Frank B. Armstrong Memorial Book Sale honors the work and the passing of one of the Libraries most devoted supporters.
