Get your calendars out … the Friends’ ever-popular Used Book Sale is coming up soon! This year’s two-day really, really BIG sale takes place indoors on Thursday, July 24 and outdoors on Friday, July 25, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. This sale always takes place in conjunction with downtown Petoskey’s fabulous sidewalk sales days.
Typically people are lined up early each morning to get the first chance at the sale books. But you can sneak a peek even earlier than that, IF you’re a member of the Friends, at the Members Only, “First Look at the Books” on Wednesday, July 23 from 4:00 to 6:30 PM.
Not a member of the Friends? No problem, you can join that night! Memberships are available for as little as $10.
But in the meantime, you can also buy used books from the Friends every day of the year! Sale books are located in the lower level of the library, as well as in the new book area across from the circulation desk.
Not only is the Used Book Sale the best bargain in town, it’s also a win-win situation —- you get a chance to buy great books at low prices, and the money generated by the sale goes to the library to purchase new books and other materials. So you can feel good about shopping our sale, knowing that the money goes to a wonderful cause. The Used Book Sale is, in fact, the Friends’ top fund raiser.
