'Tis the season for swimsuits.
If you're not a fan of the way yours fits and want to investigate some long-term solutions, be sure to stop by the library this weekend.
The Friends Foundation of Worthington Libraries will hold a book sale at which you'll find lots of titles focusing on healthy eating and weight loss. They will include the "400 Calorie Fix" and "Stop and Drop Diet," both by Liz Vaccariello, as well as the Mayo Clinic Diet and Better Homes and Gardens' "Eat Well, Lose Weight."
In the market for more food-focused titles? You can pick up cookbooks galore on topics ranging from cheese and chocolate to quinoa, seafood, tofu and vegetables.
Most books can be yours for $2 at the sale, which starts at 9 a.m. Friday, June 23, and continues through Sunday, June 25, at the Old Worthington Library, 820 High St.
If you're fascinated by royals, you'll find them well-represented at this summer sale with biographies about Prince Harry, Princess Grace of Monaco and Queen Catherine Parr, the last wife of Henry VIII.
All books are in good condition. In addition to an impressive nonfiction selection, the sale includes children's and teen titles, plus home and garden, travel and other topics. Buyers also will find audiobooks and paperback fiction perfect for beach or backyard reading.
Children's books will be sold two for $1. The selection will include titles in two of Mo Willems' most popular series, "Knuffle Bunny" and "Pigeon," as well as several newer entries in the Nancy Drew mystery series.
If you can't wait until June 23 to take a look at all the books the Friends will have available, consider joining the organization.
A members-only sale is scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, June 22.
The next book sale is planned Sept. 22 to 24.
