BURLINGTON COUNTY LIBRARY HOSTS BOOK AND MEDIA SALE
Shop for Bargains and Stock Up for Winter Nov. 12-15 in Westampton
Fall is a great time to stock up on books and movies for the winter and the Friends of the Burlington County Library are ready to help with a used book and media sale set for Nov. 12 to Nov. 15.
Held in the meeting room of the Westampton facility, the sale will run: Thursday, Nov. 12 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Friday, Nov. 13 from 10 a.m.to 8:30 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 14 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Nov. 15 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
In addition, a preview sale offered to members of the Friends group only will be held on Thursday, Nov. 12 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. (Become a Friends’ member at the door for $15 per person, $20 per family, or $10 per senior or senior family.)
Once again, shoppers will find more than 5,000 gently-used books for sale, both fiction and non-fiction, all organized by category. Most books will cost 50 cents to $1 each, and thanks to an influx of recent library donations, the majority, including nearly all of the children’s books, are being made available for the first time. There will be books about cooking, business, hobbies, crafts, biographies, music, self-help, religion, science and math, art, travel, science fiction, history and more. There also will be discounted coffee table, art, and oversized books, as well as special holiday books available.
In addition, shoppers will be able to browse a nice selection of music CDs for $1 each, movie DVDs and audio books for $2 each, and good-condition comic books, most is plastic covers, for $1 each.
Visitors will even be able to pick up Friends logo tote bags, available for just $10 each, to bring their purchases home. (Each bag comes with a $2 discount toward all book/media sales.) Also, the first 300 shoppers who purchase items at the November sale will receive $1 coupons that may be applied toward the Friends February book and media sale.
All proceeds benefit Burlington County Library programs such as the summer concert series, the summer reading programs, and the Museum Pass Program.
The County Library is located on Pioneer Boulevard off Woodlane Road in Westampton. For more information, call (609) 267-9660.
