Shop for Bargains at the Burlington County Library in Westampton


Drop by the Burlington County Library Feb. 23 to Feb. 26 to stock up on some used books, DVDs, CDs, and more during the Friends of the Library’s first book/media sale of the year.

Shoppers will find thousands of items for sale in the library’s meeting room on:
• Thursday, Feb. 23 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
• Friday, Feb. 24 from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
• Saturday, Feb. 25 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
• Sunday, Feb. 26 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

In addition, a preview sale offered to Friends members only will be held on Thursday, Feb. 23 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.)

Bargain hunters will find approximately 7,500 books available at the sale and most will cost just 50 cents to $1 each. All books will be organized by category, and the majority will be available for the first time. Look for a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction titles, children’s books, and books about cooking, business, hobbies, crafts, biographies, music, self-help, art, travel, history, religion, science and math, and more. There also will be a selection of specially-priced coffee table, art, and oversized books available.

The Friends also recently received donations of books about the Civil War and World War II, which will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Quite a few craft books about stenciling also will be available at this sale.

Music CDs will cost $1 each, and DVD movies and audiobooks will cost $2 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 February sale will receive $1 coupons that may be used at the Friends’ book/media sale scheduled for June 1 through June 4.

All proceeds benefit Burlington County Library programming, such as the children and adult 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 or visit
