The sale includes videos, CDs, and other miscellaneous items, plus a selection of recent popular novels in like-new condition.
More than 40,000 donated books of all types will be available at affordable prices. Large paperbacks and hardbacks are $1.00, paperbacks are 50 cents, DVDs and CDs are $1 per disc. All materials are in good condition. To minimize congestion, no strollers, scanners, or other electronic devices are permitted in the sale room.
The Friday evening sale is from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. for Friends of the Library members only (new memberships are available for $10 at the door); on Saturday the sale is open to all from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and on Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. A popular feature of the Sunday sale is the discounted $7.00 price for an entire grocery bag full of books.
