The Friends Bookstore has new stock!!!
As Tressa recently and graciously wrote, The Friends Bookstore, located on the second floor of the Central Library, has re-opened, after completing an "Extreme Bookstore Makeover." Not only did we paint the walls and redo the cabinets and the layout of the joint, we also removed old books that weren't selling and added books that will sell.
In fact, from here on out, if the Lord wills it and the creeks don't rise, we plan to alert patrons and other interested parties of new stock as it arrives. We will notify you by email, if you would like. Just send an email to email@example.com and ask to be added to the list.
So, here's the skinny on the new materials this week:
We have bestsellers from Nora Roberts, Iris Johansen, Richard North Patterson, Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark, as well as Johnathan Kellerman, Fern Michaels, and others-- for just $2.00 a pop.
Lots of history books--including a shelf of donated books about the Civil War.
Lots of new biographies--both adult and juvenile non-fiction, as well as more childrens' books, including picture books, readers, non-fiction and juvenile fiction.
We've gotten some interesting oldies, and some new dvds and vhs.
So, come see us soon...and let your friends know about us.
Also, please consider "liking" us on Facebook, as all of us love to be liked, and there we will post information about the Bookstore, as well as upcoming events.
Thanks so much. The Friends are rolling like thunder and we really appreciate your support.
