Children's and Teen Book Sale at Central Library December 5-18
The Friends Bookstore Children's and Teen Book Sale begins Monday, December 5. All children's and teen hardback books will be on sale for $1.00 each. A large stock of picture books, readers, board books, juvenile fiction, teen, and holiday books will be on display from December 5-18, 2011.
The bookstore is holding a raffle on a beautiful 26" doll which was anonymously donated to the Friends. It is dressed in a 19th century costume of petticoat, stockings, and underpants, and has its own little angel doll as well. Purchase tickets for $1.00 each and get a chance to win a great Christmas present for someone special in your life. The drawing will be held on December 18. You do not have to be present to win.
Enjoy coffee and baked goods in the bookstore while you shop. Friends members will be supplying fresh bakery goods twice a week at reasonable prices during the sale.
And please note that the Friends of BPL are sponsors of the Local Author's Expo, being held Saturday, December 3, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the first floor of Central Library's East Building. Come shop the Expo and then visit the Friends Bookstore gift shop.
