Book sale this week benefits Davis library

By From page A4 | June 02, 2013

The Friends of the Davis Public Library will host the next bimonthly book sale starting Friday. Friends members only are welcome from noon to 2 p.m.; as always, shoppers may join the Friends at the door.

Hours for the general public are 2 to 7 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 9. The sale will be at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis. Purchases may be made by cash and credit or debit card.

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 cost $5 and “better books” are half-price. Proceeds go to support the library’s book purchases and services.

This sale features some special magazines on architecture and astronomy, as well as a “vintage” cart at 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 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; the cards may be turned in at the sale for $4 off your book purchases.

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