Gruich center to host free book giveaway

Thousands of library books that have been in storage since Hurricane Katrina will be offered for free Sunday through Tuesday at the Dr. Frank G. Gruich Sr. Community Center on Howard Avenue in Biloxi.

Biloxi Librarian Charlene Longino said the books had been at the former libraries in Biloxi and Gulfport and include adult and children’s books, fiction and non-fiction.

Those interested can view the books from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday through Tuesday.

Said Longino: “The libraries have taken what they needed. Take as many as you want. There is no charge, but donations to help the library are gratefully accepted.”
