The library announced on its website Saturday that all wristbands guaranteeing a book and spot in line Monday to see the former president had been sold. Only those with wristbands will be admitted to the library grounds for the event.

Library officials did not say how many wristbands were made available, but they sold out within hours of being made available. There is a limit of two books, sold at $35 each, per wristband. There will be no photo opportunities with President Bush.

Entry to the book signing requires a wristband, which goes on sale at the library on Saturday beginning at 9:30 a.m. Bush appears on Monday.

The wristband and a receipt are required to get into the book signing, where books will be distributed. Wristband fees will cover the cost of the books, and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be a limited number of wristbands available.

    James, I watch the market and bush did not turn the market around. It bottomed out in the 6k range and has not recovered to the 14k range it was when bush took office. I should throw both my shoes at you!!!

    OK, Snake Oil Man, have to call you on a lie. Job loss was MUCH higher under Bush than it has been under Obama, that is a FACT. I knew you were mis-informed, but now you are a LIAR too.

    Peeved, look at the stock market when the republicans had control of congress... yeah back to Clinton, and it stayed high except the dip at 9/11 but Bush turned it around. The mess started when the dems took control of congress and started their liberal progressive law passing, pork bills. Spending money we obviously don't have, giving my tax dollars away to people unwilling to work. If every city in America is like Vanceboro... we're doomed to fail. Seems have the population is living on government checks. I personally can count 45 people/families living on my tax dollars. One has been drawing a check from Uncle Sam since he was 26 yrs old... RETIRED at 26 !!! this was 40 years ago... still getting his check.

    Does it matter who attends his little book signing? I'm certain the vast majority who show up are unable to read or write.

    To OBX'R, You hit the nail on the head also. This guy need some professional help. Would not surprise me if he is the one painting the the Swastikas around Greenville. He also supported the Tea Party candidate Rich Iott who wore the Nazi SS Uniform.
