Spring Book Sale To Benefit the Memphis Public Library

Posted By on Wed, May 20, 2015 at 8:59 AM

If it’s gently used books — at bargain-basement prices — you’re after, the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library (3030 Poplar) is where you need to be Friday and Saturday, May 22nd and 23rd.

The event is the Friends of the Library Spring 2015 Book Sale, where adult hardbacks are priced at $2 and paperbacks at 75 cents. Children’s hardbacks ($1), paperbacks (50 cents), and board books (50 cents) are another real bargain. But CDs, LPs, cassettes, magazines, videos, DVDs, and sheet music will also be for sale, as will signed editions.

All proceeds go to the Memphis Public Library collections and to improvements in the library’s community services.

Book sale hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, with a special preview sale for Friends of the Library members on Friday from 8 to 10 a.m.

And don’t overlook what’s in store at the Second Editions second-hand bookstore off the library’s main entrance. Can’t make it to the sale on Friday and Saturday, however? There are online bargains every day and throughout the year at the Memphis Public Library’s Amazon store.

For more information on the Friends of the Library Spring 2015 Book Sale, along with dates for the fall 2015 sale and branch book sales, see the Memphis Public Library’s website. •
