Bellaire will soon be host to a pop-up book shop with proceeds benefitting the city’s library.

On Dec. 5 and 12 from 9:30-11:30 a.m., Friends of the Bellaire Library, a nonprofit organization whose goal is to support programs and offerings at the Bellaire City Library, will be holding the pop-up books shop outside of the library at 5111 Jessamine St., according to a Nov. 27 news release from the nonprofit.

Available at the pop-up book shop are $10 Grab Bags of Books in categories including children, young adult and adult fiction.

“Many of the Children’s selections have been curated by one of our wonderful librarians and the books are in excellent condition—these would be great gifts for Children, Teachers and local community organizations,” according to the release.

All state, county, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines will be followed at the events. Mask wearing and social distancing are mandatory.


However, there is a shop-from-home option available as well. Supporters of the library can visit the nonprofit’s website to purchase books and then obtain them via curbside pickup. www.fotblbookstore.com
