librarysaleSpringfield, MO—It’s time for the huge Friends of the Library Fall Book Sale!

The week-long event runs Tuesday-Sunday, Oct. 20-25 at Remington’s, 1655 W. Republic Road. If you want to get a jump on the sales, come to the Friends Night Preview Sale from 5-8 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 19, show your Friends membership card or pay $5 at the door – you can use that to join the Friends that night if you wish.

This is a great time to load up on cookbooks, best-sellers, sci-fi, craft books, biographies, travel, children’s books and more for yourself or for holiday gifts. Everything’s a bargain: $1 or less; better books are $2 and up. CDs, DVDs, audiobooks, vinyl records, board games and puzzles are usually $1 or less.

The Friends’ fall and spring sales are popular with avid readers, young parents, teachers and school librarians building a collection for their children and classes, college students, researchers and treasure hunters – you never know what you’ll find there!
