Affordable prices are the best part. Hardback and paperback books on a variety of topics, books for kids, teens and adults, cookbooks, magazines, CDs, DVDs, vinyl records, sheet music and more are all priced at or below $2 - with some items starting as low as $0.25!
"In addition to prices, the benefits of buying at the Friends Fall Book Sale are numerous," Friends President Jacqueline Wallace commented. "An arm full of great and satisfying buys, well-read children, a 10-percent discount, and admission to the Preview Sale and Masquerade Party are a few reasons why the Friends Book Sale is the perfect place to stock up on great deals. And, with a wide variety of items, Book Sale shoppers can travel the world from the comfort of their favorite reading spots!"
All proceeds from the event go to support programs, services and collections at Memphis Public Library locations citywide.
"Libraries are a cornerstone in all communities. We need new and returning customers to keep coming, shopping, supporting and donating. When you do, the entire community benefits!" Wallace concluded. For more information, call 901-415-2840.
