Just in time for the holidays and for the long, cold winter nights when nothing beats a good book, hot chocolate, and a big fluffy quilt to hunker into, comes the Silver City Friends of the Library (FOL) Quarterly Book Sale on Saturday, December 10 from 10:00am-2:00pm, at the FOL Bookstore, in the big yard on Market Street across from Cheyenne Street, six blocks west of the Habitat for Humanity Restore yard.
Everyone is invited to come wander amongst the full shelves of quality books and to purchase as many volumes as they want at low prices. “Since the successful September book sale, the Bookstore has received donations of hundreds of books to replenish our shelves and a large percentage are in high quality condition,” said Barbara Guber, FOL Bookstore manager. “The Bookstore is designed to help book lovers find printed and electronic media treasures to own and to give as gifts.”
New for this sale is a separate section of large print books and a separate section of books for education and home schooling. Priced at a fraction of what they would cost new are a number of collectible book sets on history, art, and reference material. There is also the largest collection yet of books for toddlers, picture books, easy readers, chapter books, and books for adolescents and young adults. A superb selection of “coffee table” and collectible books on art, history, outdoors, photography, travel, and other topics is also available.
Separate displays are arranged throughout the Bookstore for over fifty individual authors. These are in addition to displays of more than thirty different categories– fiction (including romance, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, military, historical, westerns, action/adventure, horror, paranormal) and non-fiction (including literary classics, plays, poetry, world history, American history, Native American history, biographies, memoirs, human behavior, religion, travel, music, gardening, landscaping, cookbooks, food writing, archaeology, architecture, DIY, animals, ranching, automotive, arts and crafts).
Also available are CDs, both audio books and music, in excellent condition and a good selection of movies in DVD format.
Inside the Bookstore, hardback and trade paperback books are priced at $1.00 each and paperbacks at $0.50 each. In some individual cases, books may be priced higher. Clearance items sales take place in the FOL parking lot where visitors can purchase a bag of books (special bags are provided in the parking lot) at $2.00 per bag. Sets of books in the parking lot are priced significantly lower than value or retail cost.
The Friends of the Library accepts donations of books from the public and uses these donations to raise funds to support the Silver City Library’s programs and activities.
