Annual Scarsdale Library Book Sale Kicks off September 8

sale2Volunteers are busy sorting and organizing thousands of donated books for the Friends of the Scarsdale Library Annual Book Sale that begins Friday, September 8, with a Friends' Preview and continues through Sunday, September 17. Buyers should stock up this year as the sale will be on hiatus for a couple of years during the planned renovation and upgrading of the library. The Friends will stop accepting donations this Friday, August 25.

Current and out-of-print books, including bestsellers, classics, biographies, fiction, parenting, cooking, art, graphic novels, humor, travel, self-help, drama, religion, philosophy, poetry, history, political science, and business will be available. There is also a large selection of children's books, DVDs, CDs, LPs, audiobooks and sheet music. A special attraction is the large category of highly collectible books, rare books, limited and first editions as well as autographed copies. Proceeds from the sale help fund library programs and key services.

The opening evening Friends' Preview on September 8 from 6 to 9 p.m. is open to members of the Friends. New members may join at the door for $25. Only cash and checks are accepted for the sale, no credit cards.

As the sale progresses, the price of books is reduced. The schedule is:

Many, many thanks to Kathy Steves and the hardworking volunteers! Their countless hours of labor are what make the Book Sale possible, and the proceeds support many of the Library's most popular programs. We couldn't do everything we do without the Book Sale and the Friends of the Scarsdale Library!
