Time for a Beach Book!

Summer is upon us once again!

The weather is getting hot and it is almost time to go to the beach and soak up some sun. An essential part of my beach visits is having a good book on hand while watching the waves and feeling the sand between my toes.

At the Tyrrell County Public Library, we have you covered for this important beach necessity! Our annual book sale is on, so drop by to purchase a ton of books for an awesome deal! All proceeds from the book sale go towards our Summer Reading Program.

Looking to read a new bestseller or a literary classic this summer? Tyrrell’s collection alone has over 30,000 titles, and the combined Pettigrew Regional Library System has over 140,000, so we have everything you need for your next reading adventure!
