Big Book Sale Sept. 8-10

Post Date:08/23/2017 3:46 PM

Summer is almost over and there’s no better time and place to restock your personal book shelves and maybe even start your holiday shopping than the Friends of Chapel Hill Public Library BIG Book Sale. The sale begins on Friday, Sept. 8, from 3 to 5:30 p.m. (members only – new members may join at the door). The sale will continue from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9 and will wrap up from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10 with a bag sale—bring your own bag and fill it for $5.

Whether you’re a fiction lover or prefer non-fiction or just like to treasure hunt for old favorites, you will want to be at the Big Book Sale. We have an abundance of science/math/medicine, US and world history, classics, performing arts and entertainment, and crafts and hobbies as well as children’s books and even more than the usual number of art books. We also have a selection of books from the William and Ida Friday collection.

Prices for children’s and mass market paperbacks start at 50 cents and most books are priced at $3 or less.

Come early and often and browse to your heart’s content. The Friends Book Store on the lower level of the Library will also be open during Big Book Sale hours with many of those books at special sale prices.
