The Friends of the Davis Public Library will host its next bimonthly book sale starting Friday at the library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis. Members only will be admitted from noon to 2 p.m.; as always, 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.
This sale has several highlight:
* Shoppers may pay with a credit or debit card;
* A special “estate” collection from former Mayor Julie Partansky, including many books about the environment and conservation, will be showcased on a special table; and
* Some nice music books on music and music theory — acquired from the collection of Charlene Kunitz, a retiring voice teacher and one-time performer — will be showcased. 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.
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.
“All sales provide funds to help make our library even better with new books and services,” a news release said.
Membership applications for the Friends of the Davis Public Library will be available at the door or online at davislibraryfriends.org. Membership includes bi-monthly postcards reminders of the book sales. These cards may be turned in at each book sale for $4 off your book purchases.
