It wouldn’t really be November without the annual Friends’ used book sale, would it? This year the popular two-day event will take place on November 4 and 5 in the library’s Wisner Center, with the normal extensive inventory of all types of books, DVDs and CDs at very low prices, according to Sales Event Chair Kathy Sullivan.
“We know that library patrons always look forward to this book sale as a way to ease into winter with a great supply of their favorite books to get them through to spring,” she said.
As usual, patrons with an active Friends membership will get first shot at the books in the “Members-Only Pre-Sale” on November 4 from 9:30 to 10:30 am. Patrons can purchase a new membership or renew an expired one at the door.
The doors will open to the public from 10:30 am to 4 pm on Saturday, November 4 and from 1 to 4 pm on Sunday, November 5. Sullivan said shoppers can expect to find thousands of books in a wide variety of categories.
“No matter what you like—fiction, non-fiction, biography, self-help, cooking, leisure & hobbies, home & garden, religious & spiritual, business, life science, health & diet, children’s and teen’s—you will find it at our sale,” Sullivan said.
She said the sale will feature a couple of unusual opportunities for shoppers, including a large display of Christmas-themed books for both adults and kids and a large number of Cliff Notes at $0.50 each.
Adult books will be priced at $1 for hardcover, $0.50 for paperback and $10 for a bag of books. Children’s books will be priced at $0.50 for hardcover, $0.25 for paperback and $5 for a bag (maximum of 30 books). All proceeds from the sale will go toward the support of special programs or other needs of the library.
“Whether you can make it to the November sale or not, stay on the alert for smaller “pop-up” sales at some of the special library events...like Reindeer Night on the evening of December 5,” she said.
The November 4-5 book sale will offer a wide assortment of books, DVDs and CDs at low prices.
