Mark up your calendar to save a bundle on books, records and other good stuff at the Friends of the Library Book Sale, September 16, 17 and 18, at the Agricultural Hall at the Kansas Expocentre.
“Each book a person buys at the Friends Annual Book Sale helps us put a book in the hands of each child enrolled in our summer reading program,” Linda Hayse, Friends board president, said. “It is a wonderful opportunity to advocate for the library by becoming a Friend.”
The sale is a three-day event where customers can come and browse tables filled with nearly 100,000 books, tapes, records, CDs and DVDs. They can buy items for a fraction of their value, getting hardback books for only a few dollars.
A special feature is the “premium collection” with books priced from $3-$20 that are special edition, signed by author or like-new. For traditional genres, like biography and arts to romance and mystery, books are priced at $1 or $2.
For more information, contact Mary Campbell at the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library: 785-580-4445.
The book sale is supported by: Kaw Valley Bank, Berberich Trahan & Co, Briman’s Jewelers, Community National Bank, Educational Credit Union, HTK Architects, Dillons Stores and Hy-Vee Food Stores.
