Summer Reading Book Sale Starts TODAY!
To kick off 2012's summer reading, the Friends of BPL are hosting an in-house book sale. The Friends have received several recent donations (tons of children's books, as well as adult nonfiction and bestsellers).
All books and media in the store are 25% off (which normally sell for $2 or under)!
The Bookstore is located on the second floor of the Central Library (2100 Park Place-35203). Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and Sunday from 2:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. For additional information, please call (205) 226-3676.
Book Sale ends June 10th. Come on down!
