Buy a Book, Help the Library

Who doesn't love a sale and books?  I received notice about this sale and thought it might be of interest to you.

The Friends of the Sacramento Public Library is having a warehouse book sale on August 4 and 11, 2012.

More than 70,000 "gently used" books, videos, records, and books-on-cassettes will be offered for prices from fifty cents to $2 at the August 4 and 11 sale at the warehouse of the Friends of the Sacramento Public Library.

The warehouse is at Suite E, 8250 Belvedere Ave., just south of 14th Ave. between Power Inn Rd. and Florin-Perkins Rd.  Sale hours will be from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday August 4, and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on August 11.

There will be a preview for Friends members only from 9 a.m. to noon on August 4 (You can join at the door for $15).

Income from the sale helps pay for programs, equipment, and materials local libraries need but can't afford.  [The genealogy programs offered for free at the Sacramento Central Library are supported by the "Friends" - an extra special reason to check out the warehouse sale. - Denise] 

The Friends' "Book Den" store at the warehouse, with most items priced individually from $3 up, will be open during the sale, as well as weekly on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.  For more information, call (916) 731-8493 or go to
