Don’t miss Friends of the Library Book Sale at Norwood Library!

Susan Grote with Friends of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County sent us a guest blog below publicizing FPL’s first ever two-day book sale at our Norwood Branch Library this Friday and Saturday. This is a terrific sale for two reasons: the prices are so low your pocketbook will barely notice, plus part of every purchase will go to our local library for hosting the event. See you there!

The Friends of the Library will hold a Book Sale at the Norwood Branch Library on Friday, July 17, from 12 noon to 6 pm and on Saturday, July 18, from 10 am to 5 pm. This is the first time the Norwood Branch has hosted a Friends of the Library Book Sale.

Gently used books, CDs, audio and video tapes, and books-on-tape will be sold at bargain prices. Hardback books are priced at $1 to $5, and paperback fiction at $.50.

The Sale will offer hardback and paperback fiction in every genre: general fiction, mystery, romance, science fiction, horror and westerns. The non-fiction collection covers a wide array of topics, such as art, business, crafts, cooking, gardening, history, home improvement and sports, just to name a few. An extensive collection of children’s books also will be offered for sale.

Students will find classic literature paperbacks on sale for $.50, as well as dictionaries and thesauruses available for purchase. These items are a great way to get started on summer reading assignments or stock up for the next school year.

Purchases may be paid for by cash, check, Master Card or Visa.

All proceeds from the Sale will be used by The Friends of the Library to fund numerous free programs for children, teens and adults throughout the Cincinnati and Hamilton County Library system. The Norwood Branch Library also will receive a portion of the proceeds in appreciation for hosting the Sale.
