Local libraries are doing some spring cleaning and have scheduled book sales during the next few weeks. These events beckon patrons to grab a coffee and come do a little casual browsing. You’re sure to leave with a bag o’ books.
Here’s a list:
Boyd — Today (Thursday) is the last day for the public library’s book sale.
Bridgeport — The library is hosting a book sale Thursday, March 25, through Saturday, March 27. Times are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Hardback books are $1, paperbacks are 50 cents, romance paperbacks are eight for a $1 and videos/DVDs/audio are $1 or as marked. Saturday is $1 per bag.
Newark — More than 3,000 books will be sold at the library on Saturday, March 27, through Saturday, April 3. All books will be priced 25 cents to $2.
*I owe an apology to the Newark Library and its patrons. In the March 4 All Around Wise, I published incorrect dates for the book sale.
