The Maybell Women's Club is having its book sale at the Maybell Library. There are more than 1,200 books to sell. These books were donated to the Women's Club and are not new enough to put into the Maybell Library. All proceeds benefit the historian room and library. There will be refreshments and entertainment at the sale. Everyone is welcome from noon to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Maybell historian room at the library.

If anyone would like to donate, call Lance Poole. Also, during the hunting season, deer and elk hides may be donated by calling Lance Poole.
