Stock Up for Summer Reading May 31-June 3

Plan to stop by the Burlington County Library to stock up on your summer reading supplies during The Friends of the Library’s books and media sale scheduled for May 31 to June 3.

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

• Thursday, May 31 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
• Friday, June 1 from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
• Saturday, June 2 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
• Sunday, June 3 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition, a preview sale offered to Friends members only will be held on Thursday, May 31 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 of the books being offered were not available at previous Friends’ sales and will cost just 50 cents to $1 each. 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 at bargain prices. More than 100 specially priced cookbooks in good condition also will be available at this sale.

The Friends also recently accepted a large donation of music CDs, which will cost just $1 each, and DVD movies and audiobooks, which will cost $2 each. There will even be some individually priced vinyl records available for browsing.

Don’t forget to purchase a Friends logo tote bag for just $10 to carry your treasures home, and as a bonus, each bag comes with a $2 discount toward all sale books and media items.  

If you’re one of the first 300 shoppers to purchase items, you will receive a $1 coupon that may be used at any upcoming Friends sale, including the next one scheduled for Sept. 6 to Sept. 9.

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
