The lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are upon us and if you’re looking for a good book to bring with you to the beach, the mountains, on the plane, or to that lawn chair under the tree in your back yard, the best place to find one is at the Friends of the Sierra Madre Library’s Best Used Book Sale. Held on Friday, June 7, from 3:00-7:00pm and Saturday, June 8, from 10:00am-2:00pm at the Sierra Madre Library, 440 W. Sierra Madre Blvd, Sierra Madre, the sale offers high-quality books that have been culled from the library’s shelves or donated.
If Dad is a sports, photography, or automobile enthusiast, we have lots of books that he might like to receive for Father’s Day. Or, look for a great novel or mystery – those in the stacks in the basement are being sold for half price. If you’re planning to travel this summer, be sure to check out our travel guides. These and a number of Beatlemania books, ethnic and BBQ cookbooks, and DVDs and audio books are also being featured at this month’s sale. As always, in the back parking lot there will be $1.00 books on every subject, together with paperbacks, 5/$1.00, and children's books 25 cents each. Look out there as well for a huge collection of topographical maps of California back-country, perfect for hikers and campers.
Proceeds from the Best Used Book Sales benefit the resources and programs of the Sierra Madre Public Library. For more information, visit our website at sierramadrelibraryfriends.org or call 626 355-7186.
