John Wesley was an Anglican cleric and theologian. He, along with his brother Charles Wesley, are credited with founding the Methodist movement.
The Heritage Research Center Annual Book Sale has been doing well, but we still have hundreds of great books left. Stop by and take a look. You’ll find the prices hard to beat!
After a hiatus of a year and a half due to the Center’s remodel construction, we are once again able to have our annual book sale. The sale runs through this week – March 4 through 8, 2013. The hours of the sale are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 9:00 to noon on Friday the 8th.
This is probably our largest sale, so don’t worry about others having scooped up all the great finds. In many cases there are multiple copies of sought-after titles.
We hope to see you soon!
The Heritage Research Center was recently remodeled and re-energized. As part of that effort we will be producing a monthly newsletter and regular postings here on our blog. Do check back often to get all the latest news!
