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.


The details…

Friday, August 4–1 pm to 4:30 pm (members pre-sale*)

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 We don’t accept magazines or outdated textbooks and computer books either, but Lacey Library has a magazine rack in an alcove near the bathrooms where freebies can find a new home.

No fooling, we have manga, westerns and fiction!

AngelfaceThe April 1, 2017 book sale is shaping up nicely with a collection of Louis L’Amour pocket books, manga and lots of fiction. Library staff is combing through the couple hundred manga donated in recent weeks to stock library shelves, but there should be a pile left for the sale.

Louis fans will love the vintage pocket books. Westerns rarely come in, either paperback or hardback, so get here early. Be prepared to spend time browsing through the fiction and multimedia tables. VHS tapes are still around (don’t we know it!) and priced to move.

Prices have not changed: $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. Mangas will be priced as marked.
