Summer sped by and the kids are now back in school which means that the holidays will soon be upon us. One of the best places to start your holiday shopping is at the Friends of the Sierra Madre Library’s Best Used Book Sale being held on Friday, October 7, from 3:00-7:00PM and Saturday, October 8, from 10:00AM-2:00PM. The library is located at 440 W. Sierra Madre Blvd. in the city of Sierra Madre and there is parking on the street and behind the library.
Best Used Book Sales co-chairs, Martha Troedson and Alan Leahy, tell us there are a number of lovely coffee table books on art and contemporary culture. Ever thought about trying your hand at quilting - we just got a large donation of quilting books with patterns and instructions for every level of quilting hobbyist. Mystery fans will find a large number of mysteries and thrillers, many of which are large-print selections, on our shelves. The sale will also feature a large number of children's and teen books in excellent condition as well as a selection of 2011 fiction and non-fiction titles for adults. These items and many other adult fiction and non-fiction books, children’s books, audio books, CDs, and DVDs will be available to purchase for your reading and listening pleasure. Tables outside the library will feature hardback and trade fiction and non-fiction for $1.00 each and paperbacks for twenty-five cents each (or five for $1.00). All children's books outside are now only 25 cents. Proceeds from the Best Used Book Sales are donated to the Sierra Made Public Library to support program and equipment needs.
So, bring your shopping bags to the Sierra Madre Library on Friday, October 7, and Saturday, October 8, for an opportunity to purchase some of the best used books around at the Friends of the Sierra Madre Library’s Best Used Book Sale.
