Book sale benefits Friends of the Library

By From page A2 | April 04, 2013

The Friends of the Davis Public Library will host their next bimonthly book sale starting Friday at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis. Members only are admitted from noon to 2 p.m. Friday, but shoppers may join the Friends group at the door.

The sale will be open to all from 2 to 7 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

All hardback books and trade paperbacks will be $2; pocket paperbacks will be $1; children’s books will range from 25 cents to $2; and CDs, DVDs and tapes will be $1. On Sunday, full bags of books will sell for $5 and “better books” are half-price. Purchases may be made by cash, check, credit card and debit card.

Proceeds will fund programs and services provided by the Friends of the Library.

Books on nature, flora and fauna and birds have been donated recently, along with some knitting books. There is a new “vintage” cart by the front entrance that will display the best of an older generation of books.

Books about parenting, child rearing and children’s education will be found in the smaller side room, along with children’s books. The children’s books are now separated into picture books for toddlers, reading books for grade-school kids and books of interest to teenagers.

Membership applications for the Friends of the Davis Public Library will be available at the door or online at http://davislibraryfriends.org. Membership includes bimonthly postcards reminders of the book sales, which can be turned in at each book sale for $4 off book purchases.

For more information, call Peggy Schwab at 530-756-1482.
