KOLOA — The power outage did not stop the people from coming Wednesday night.
Friends of the Koloa Public Library took advantage of the traditional VIP night-before the sale to see what treasures they could find at the Koloa Public Library used books sale, which opened Thursday.
“We have some dedicated book lovers,” said David Thorpe, the Koloa Public Library librarian. “They didn’t let a power outage stop them. They came with flashlights and boxes and went through as if the power never went out.”
Thorpe also noted the lack of a book store since the closing of Border’s Books and Music may have also been a factor in attracting the crowd to the preview night limited to Friends of the Koloa Public Library.
Despite the pre-sale surge, there were still a lot of books available for shoppers, but the stock dwindling rapidly.
“We still have a great selection of coffee table books, Great Books of the Western World and, of course, lots of children books,” Thorpe said.
Additional offerings include hardcover fiction, nonfiction, paperbacks, CDs and DVDs. The sale continues today from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Koloa Public Library meeting room and is hosted by the Friends of the Koloa Public Library.
