The Friends of the Fort Worth Public Library is holding its biannual book sale, with bargains galore for members and non-members alike.
The book sale opens to the public on Friday, October 26, and runs through the weekend, closing on Sunday, October 28. A $1 admission fee (members and children get in for no cost) gives you access to hundreds, if not thousands of books for adults, teens, and children, audio books, and CDs—many of them costing $1 or less.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, because it’s worthy of repeating: these book sales are a fantastic way to grow your library without spending a fortune. Remember, not all the books for sale are books taken out of circulation.
Some of them never made it to the library shelves, for a variety of reasons, which means there are books available that are in great shape. As long as you don’t have your heart set on getting a specific title in a certain condition, you won’t be disappointed.
Sale dates and times are as follows:
- Friday, October 26, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
- Saturday, October 27, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
- Sunday, October 28, noon to 4:30 p.m.
The book sale is being held at the Friends’ Chapter 2 Annex in the Wedgwood Village Shopping Center, located at 5318 Trail Lake Dr. Master Card, Visa, and Discover cards—as well as cash—are accepted. For more information on the sale, call the Friends Book Store at 817-346-2255.
