Book lovers and bargain hunters, get ready! The Friends of the Carlsbad Library Better Books Sale kicks off this Saturday, Oct. 20 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Georgina Cole Library’s Community Room, located at 1250 Carlsbad Village Drive. The sale continues on Sunday, Oct. 21 from 1 to 3 p.m.
Hundreds of great books will be available for sale, including coffee table, children’s, cookbooks and much more. "The Better Books Sale allows us to offer many of our finer books at once, finding new homes for special volumes and making more money to support such library programs as Carlsbad Reads Together and the Summer Reading Program,” explains Taffy Cannon, Friends of the Library President. “And part of the excitement, of course, is that you never know what treasures you might come across at one of these sales."
Shoppers are encouraged to arrive early for the best selection. All books are half price on Sunday. As an added bonus, the Carlsbad Garden Club is partnering with the Friends of the Library and will sell plants outside the Cole Library. Visit your library this weekend for two great sales in one day.
