October 14 Book Sale

The Silver City Friends of the Library is holding an October Book Sale on Saturday, October 14, from 10:00am-2:00pm, at the FOL Bookstore, 1510 Market Street–in the big yard on Market Street across from Cheyenne Street, six blocks west of the Habitat for Humanity Restore yard.

This sale will be held inside the bookstore only; there will be no parking lot sales. 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.

“The Bookstore’s shelves are filled to capacity with quality books that offer intriguing and compelling reading,” Barbara Guber, FOL Bookstore Manager said.  “The Friends of the Library Bookstore continues to receive donations of hundreds of books from the community.  A large percentage of these are in excellent condition.  We have such a large collection of books that it’s hard to describe them all.  We invite folks should come to the Bookstore, wander the stacks, and find the treasures that await them.”

Guber also noted that there is a big display of music CDs, audio books and vintage radio shows, as well as vintage vinyl records, all of which are for sale.

Visitors to the Bookstore will now find an entire room featuring books for children and youth of all ages, and a special display of rare 1st edition and collectible works.

Separate displays are arranged throughout the Bookstore for over 50 individual authors.  These are in addition to displays of more than 30 different categories of fiction and non-fiction.  The FOL Bookstore has separate sections for large print books, as well as a large section of books for education and home schooling.

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. You do not have to be a member of FOL to purchase books.

Mark your calendars for the next FOL Book Sale, Saturday, December 9 (Inside Bookstore sales and Parking Lot sales). For information about the Friends of the Library, contact
