You're Going to Love These Changes to Our 4th of July Sale!


The Sale Will Now Run July 3, 4 & 5

We have turned the one-day sale into a 3-day event to give patrons more opportunities to find time in their busy holiday schedule. So, now you don't have to choose between that family picnic and some excellent books at bargain prices. You can have it all!

Beat the Heat and Come Indoors

Standing on 105-degree asphalt, trying to find the books you love, is not a way that most sane people like to spend their time. So, we're moving most of our books into the air conditioned Wisner Center in 2019 to help you beat the heat. 

  • Wednesday, July 3: Indoors only; no bag sale; hard cover books $2 and paperbacks $1; will feature adult fiction, adult non-fiction, classics and some children's. Members-Only "Early Bird Sale" from 9 to 11 am; open to the public from 11 am to 3 pm.
  • Thursday, July 4: Indoors and outdoors (The "Main Event"); $10 bag sale all day; individual books still $2 for hardcover and $1 for paperback; all categories of books. Open to the public from 8:30 am to 3 pm.
  • Friday, July 5: Indoors (maybe some outdoors); all remaining categories; $5 bag sale. Open to the public from 9 am to 2 pm.

Re-Stocking throughout the Sale

We will be continuously restocking the shelves throughout the sale to make sure there are fresh and interesting choices for everyone. So, don't worry. If you can't make it to the sale early, chances are good there will still be some interesting titles for you to pick from.
