Join Friends of the Sierra Madre Public Library at their Back-to-School Used Book Sale. The sale will be held on Friday, Aug. 3 from 3 – 7 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 4 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Featured for sale in the Basement will be a variety of school supplies, reference sets, atlases, dictionaries, and even a world globe. There are complete sets of “The Old West,” “Great Lives from History (American Women Series),” and “The Dictionary of Art” to use at home or in the classroom. As always, we will have nearly-new best-sellers and “coffee-table” books on the Basement table. The shelves are overflowing with all kinds of fiction and non-fiction as well as DVDs and CDs.
In the parking lot there will be a large selection of nearly new young adult fiction and boxes full of teacher materials for only $1 each. Look for vintage magazines, children’s CDs and DVDs, as well as those popular Bargain Boxes with books for only $1. Children and teen titles in the parking lot will sell for 25 cents to $1 and small paperbacks 5 for $1. Don’t miss the special Saturday only sale in the parking lot and take advantage of these great bargains on wonderful, gently-used books.
All proceeds are used for services, acquisitions, and programs of the Library. The sale will be held behind the Sierra Madre Public Library, located at 440 W. Sierra Madre Blvd. in Sierra Madre. The Friends of the Sierra Madre Public Library is a non-profit organization. For more information, sierramadrelibraryfriends.org, or call the library at (626) 355-7186.
