Friends Bookstore News
Greetings from the Friends Bookstore staff,
This month we're highlighting the Friends Bookstore gift shop.
To encourage you to check out items with our Friends logo, we have a special on our Aztec mug and soup cup with spoon. Regularly $5.95 and $7.95 each, we're dropping the .95 from each item and pairing them for only $12.00 for the rest of this month.
Also, check out our Friends water bottle for $10.95, our white ceramic Friends mug for $4.95, and our "sticky notebook" for $2.95. We also have a lovely metal bookmark with our logo.
We have Friends T-shirts in both red and green adult sizes and pink and green children sizes for $12.95, and a Friends tote bag that is $12.95 as well. We also have other library T-shirts and bags for less.
We have lightly used donated gift items such as candles and candle holders, puzzles, stuffed animals, journals, picture frames, and more.
And we have some of our nicer and more unusual books that are specially priced—to raise just a little more money for BPL. The books in the gift shop include new books offered by the Birmingham Historical Society, the Alabama Bench & Bar Historical Society, The Birmingham Public Library, and the Birmingham-Jefferson Historical Society. These books are sold for full price.
And, as usual, we are continually putting out additional donated and library-deacquisitioned books. This week we will be be putting out a new estate donation as well as more of the Rushton family donation. We'll give you more details as we get them ready. And thank you all for making our "stock reduction" sale a great success!
