SIKESTON -- Although its offerings are always diverse, this year's annual used book sale at the Sikeston Public Library will feature a heftier selection of children's titles.

"We did a massive weeding in our children's section so we'll have between 2,000 and 3,000 available for the book sale. We were running out of space so we removed some of the older books that weren't in circulation," said Ron Eifert, assistant director of the library.
