The Friends Fall Spectacular Sale

It’s about journeys.  Go into the past, discover a human story or find a new place. Whatever road you take, it starts with the Friends Fall Spectacular Sale.  We have books on history,  biographies/autobiographies and travel in this special sale.  Fiction and mystery will be out as well to spice things up.

Unless priced as marked, hardcovers and trade paperbacks are $1.

This is a Friday sale open to all–no membership fee required–and open all day so there is no excuse not taking your lunch break to browse for that next adventure.

Holiday books and more

‘Tis the Saturday  to get your holiday books at our October book sale. We roll out selections in all categories: cookbooks, romance, children’s, craft, even mysteries. We set aside these books throughout the year for this seasonal sale, and they only needed a whiff of a holiday to them–Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwaanza, Thanksgiving, snow–to get them in the seasonal pile.

We also have the usual suspects of non-fiction (a table plus a back room), fiction, multimedia (DVD and VHS), westerns, fantasy and science fiction.  As always, hardbacks and trade paperbacks are $1, children’s books start at 25 cents and paperbacks 5 for $1 or 25 cents each.

Get first pick by joining the Friends for the Friday pre-sale, a members-only event.
