The upcoming Best Used Book Sale will take place on Friday, February 3 from 3:00 – 7:00 p.m., and Saturday, February 4 from 10:00 a.m. -2:00 p.m. This will be our annual VINTAGE sale. We have been collecting interesting and collectible books especially for this sale. Featured in the Basement will be many SIGNED, FIRST, and LIMITED editions from the past. There also will be several fascinating sets to choose from, such as the Imperial Dictionary of Universal Biography (1890?), America: Great Crises in Our History (1923), The Nazis of Germany (1978), and the Smithsonian Scientific Series (1938).
We recently received a large donation of SIGNED Robert B. Parker books (Spenser, Jesse Stone); some are First Editions as well. As always, we will have a large collection of “Coffee-table Books” on cooking, art, contemporary culture, history and sports on the table in the basement. The shelves are full of fiction and non-fiction books in every genre.
The parking lot will include a huge collection of vintage FATE magazines. Some date back to the 1970s and include strange tales such as UFO sightings, paranormal experiences and unexplained phenomena. Children’s and teen books will be sold from .25 cents – $1.00 in the parking lot and small paperbacks are .25 cents each or 5/$1.00. Our popular $1.00 Bargain Books will include some vintage books as well.
The sale will be held behind the Sierra Madre Library, 440 West Sierra Madre Blvd. in Sierra Madre. All proceeds are used for services, acquisitions and programs of the library. We look forward to seeing you and talking about books at the Best Used Book Sale!
