AMARILLO -- Due to the forecasted severe weather this weekend the Friends of the Amarillo Public Library have decided to cancel the final book sale of 2013.
Library PR Coordinator Stacy Clopton Yates says, "The Friends were concerned about turnout at the sale, but safety was the main concern. We have people who wait outside for the sale to begin and a lot of pedestrian traffic in our parking lot on the days of the sale,” says Yates. “With the forecast calling for snow on Friday morning and wind chill temperatures expected to be just above zero through most of the weekend, the Friends decided to err on the side of caution.”
The Friends will likely try to schedule a makeup sale sometime early in 2014.
