Get ready to spend some leisure time reading or watching a few movies this fall by shopping for bargains at the Friends of the Library’s books and media sale set for Sept. 6 through Sept. 9 at the Burlington County Library in Westampton.

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

Organized by category, most of the books cost just 50 cents to $1 each and were not available at previous Friends’ sales. Look for a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction titles, including many children’s books. Explore books about history, science fiction, crafts, cooking, business, hobbies, biographies, music, self-help, art, travel, religion, science, technology and more. In addition, there will be a nice selection of specially priced coffee table, art, and oversized books for sale.
