Back to School

The Friends are excited to announce that the BACK-TO-SCHOOL Best Used Book Sale will be held on Friday, August 6 from 3:00-7:00 p.m. and Saturday, August 7 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. MASKS and SOCIAL DISTANCING will be required during this sale. It will be held in the Library Parking Lot at 440 West Sierra Madre Blvd. in Sierra Madre. For your Back-to-School needs, we will have tables filled with school supplies, reference materials, and even a complete set of the 2018 World Book Encyclopedia. Teachers will also find many helpful books and materials ready to be used in the classroom and/or virtually.

Our Bargain Books will be available too: Children’s and Teen books will sell from 50 cents – $1.00. Adult Bargain Books are $1.00 each and small paperbacks are 25 cents each or 5/$1.00. A collection of DVDs, CDs, and Audio books will also be on sale.

Recently, we received a large donation of art books which will also be in the Parking Lot at very low prices. Look for books about artists, art collections, art history, and artistic techniques.

Shoppers will not be able to access the basement at this sale, but we have selected some of our nicest “Table Books” from inside to have available at this sale. These will include several 2021 titles of fiction; Julia Child’s “The French Chef Cookbook” written to accompany her TV debut; some local history books including John Robinson’s “The San Gabriels; some fascinating books about collectible cars and cultural icons; and many lovely children’s books.

And, don’t forget that Saturday is the $5.00 BAG SALE. For $5.00 we will give you a large grocery bag and you can stuff it with as many of the books or media material in the Parking Lot (except “Table Books”) as you can get inside.

See you at the August Sale!
