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 We don’t accept magazines or outdated textbooks and computer books either, but Lacey Library has a magazine rack in an alcove near the bathrooms where freebies can find a new home.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

Have you been waiting for that book to go down in price? Our internet sales manager is busy cutting the prices of our Amazon inventory. By 10 percent, at least, he says. Visit our storefront often to see whether that book you’ve been eyeing has hit the floor….well, maybe not by that much.
See what is on sale.
