Thousands of Items Available at the Burlington County Library Sept. 7-10

Stop by the Burlington County Library in Westampton from Sept. 7 through Sept. 10 to browse for bargains at the Friends of the Library’s used books and media sale.
Shoppers will find thousands of items available in the library’s meeting room, including a wide selection of books, CDs and DVDs. The majority of books that will be featured at the September sale have not been offered by the Friends before, including hardbacks, paperbacks, children’s books and more. The sale will run:
• Thursday, Sept. 7 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
• Friday, Sept. 8 from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
• Saturday, Sept. 9 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
• Sunday, Sept. 10 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition, a preview sale offered to Friends members only will be held on Thursday, Sept. 7 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.)

During the Friends’ sale, more than 7,500 books will be available, all grouped by genre, and most will cost just 50 cents to $1 each. Take time to explore books about cooking, business, hobbies, crafts, biographies, music, self-help, art, travel, history, religion, science fiction, science and math, and more. Look for gently-used hardback fiction titles for just $1 apiece, as well as specially priced coffee table, art and oversized books at discounted prices.

In addition, the Friends group recently received a nice donation of media items in good condition, including music CDs, which will cost $1 each, and DVD movies and audiobooks, which will cost just $2 each.

Be sure to carry your purchases home in a Friends logo tote bags, available for just $10 each. 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 September sale will receive $1 coupons that may be used at the next Friends’ book/media sale scheduled for Nov. 30 to Dec. 3.

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
