Special Sale: Cookbooks, quilt books and media

Cookbook collectors: this sale is for you.  With so many cookbooks in our inventory, we have no choice but to hold  a one-day sale in September to share the bounty.  We have books on ethnic food, desserts, vegetarian fare, crock pot dishes, seafood, casseroles…the list goes on. Many are like new so even if you can’t boil water you can certainly gift them to someone who can.

Oh, and just to keep the day interesting, the back room filled with non-fiction selections will be open; not to mention, a table or two will hold DVDs and VHS tapes (for those die-hard VCR owners), and a stash of quilting books. New selections have come in since the last sale so don’t miss out.

Books and DVDs are $1.  VHS tapes are 25 cents or five for a $1. With these prices, start a kitchen library!

Counting down to the BIG, BIG book sale

 

 

We cancelled our June book sale so we could bring you this one and only summer event. Great selections on all your favorites: mystery hardbacks, fiction hardbacks and cookbooks.

Same low prices: $1 hardbacks and trade paperbacks, 25-cent paperbacks (less if you buy five at a time) and children’s books that start at 25 cents. Videos are 25 cents to $3.

Can’t make it? There are two sales left in the year–October 6-7 and December 1-2. Remember, we put out holiday-themed books in the fall sale, a good time to search for that elusive Christmas mystery or craft book.


Notables

Good variety of WWI and WWII books, including a set of  “battle-books,” complete with maps, in excellent condition.

Great selection of quality children’s books such as picture books and chapter books.

Potentially a lot of travel, self help, some NW hiking guides and a huge amount of westerns.

Cancelled: June book sale

Yes, it’s true…the June book sale is off. We are saving up our existing inventory, and, if the spring cleaning gods are kind to us, we will be adding more books to the pile for the August book sale.

In the meantime, keep us in mind when you clear out your reading rooms. We gladly accept donations of gently used books, audiobooks and movies. Bring them to the library counter to donate to the Timberland Regional Library system. If you would like to give directly to the Friends, we accept donations during our bimonthly book sales. Don’t forget to ask for a tax-deductible receipt. 

We know how hard it is to toss a book, but, please, no dirty, musty, water-stained, or falling apart specimens (they really can’t be called books anymore). Toss them in the recycle bin. We don’t accept magazines or outdated textbooks and computer books either, but Lacey Library has a magazine rack in an alcove near the bathrooms where freebies can find a new home.
