All books, both fiction and non-fiction, will be organized by category, and most will cost just 50 cents to $1 each. There will be lots of children’s books, as well as books about cooking, business, hobbies, crafts, biographies, music, self-help, religion, science and math, art, travel, science fiction, history and more. There will also be special-priced coffee table, art, and oversized books available.
Shoppers also will find a nice selection of music CDs for $1 each, as well as DVD movies and audiobooks for $2 each. And for those who want to carry their purchases home in style, the Friends will be selling logo tote bags for just $10 each and each bag comes with a $2 discount toward all book/media sales. Also, the first 300 shoppers who purchase items at the February sale will receive $1 coupons that may be applied toward the Friends’ book/media sale in June.
All proceeds benefit Burlington County Library programs such as the summer concert series, the summer reading programs, and the Museum Pass Program.
