Used book and media sale at Baldwin October 29
It's a return to pre-pandemic days as the Friends of the Baldwin Public Library hold a sale of used books and media on Saturday, October 29, from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m., Sunday, October 30, from 12-4 p.m. and Monday, October 31, from 10 a.m. to noon.
The sale is located on the lower level of the Baldwin Public Library.
On Friday night, October 28, Friends members will have the opportunity to shop a special pre-sale from 6-8 p.m. Memberships will be available for purchase at the door. All proceeds benefit the library’s programs and services.
“We’re excited to get closer to our pre-COVID sale format, with our Friday night for Friends, and utilizing much of the lower level”, said Friends of the BPL President Ryndee Carney. “People have been so generous with their donations, and we just know shoppers are going to find some great books and media to carry them through the fall."
Have loads of books and DVDs from those stay-at-home days? Donations continue to be dropped off at the library on a regular basis, and the selection of materials for sale include a large selection of lightly-used hardcover and paperback books for children and adults, along with DVDs and music CDs.
The Friends have also been using books that are in less-than pristine condition to create wearable buttons, so be sure to check out the display board with new designs for sale.
