Shop for Summer Reading Bargains June 1-4

Stop by the Burlington County Library to stock up on your beach books and other summer reading supplies during The Friends of the Library’s upcoming book/media sale set for June 1 to June 4.

Bargain hunters will find thousands of used books available, as well as a wide selection of DVDs, CDs, and more in the library’s meeting room in Westampton on:

• Thursday, June 1 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
• Friday, June 2 from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
• Saturday, June 3 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
• Sunday, June 4 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition, a preview sale offered to Friends members only will be held on Thursday, June 1 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.)

Organized by category, most books have never been offered by the Friends before and will cost just 50 cents to $1 each. Look for a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction titles, children’s books, and books about history, cooking, business, hobbies, biographies, music, self-help, art, travel, history, religion, science, technology, and more, including hundreds of books about textile crafts such as quilting, knitting and sewing. (Additionally, a nice selection of high-quality craft books will be available for just $2.50 each.) There also will be specially-priced coffee table, art, and oversized books for sale.

Music CDs will cost $1 each, and DVD movies and audiobooks will cost $2 each. Puzzles, games and coloring books for young children will also be available for 50 cents and $1 each.

Shoppers can also pick up Friends logo tote bags for just $10 each to carry their purchases home in style. As a bonus, each bag comes with a $2 discount toward all Friends’ book/media sales.  

In addition, the first 300 shoppers who purchase items at the June sale will receive $1 coupons that may be used at the next Friends’ book/media sale scheduled for Sept. 7 to Sept. 10.

All proceeds benefit Burlington County Library programming, such as the children’s Summer Reading Program and the Museum Pass Program. The Burlington County Library is located on Pioneer Boulevard off Woodlane Road in Westampton. For more information, call (609) 267-9660 or visit
