Library Book Sales

Saturday, July 12, 2008

Today we hit the library book sale in downtown Portsmouth. If you haven't been to one of these you should go. Just check your local library website for information. Most have a Friends of the Library organization for fundraising which holds a book sale either once a month or a couple of times a year. We are fortunate enough to live within easy reach of about 4 cities that hold regular book sales. Many price books by the inch (ie. 1"= $1) so a stack of books 15" high only costs about $15. We made out today with 14 books and 6 National Geographic maps for only $13. Not only do they sell used library books, but many accept donations from the community, so they have everything from cookbooks, to text books, magazines, maps, travel guides, encyclopedias and, of course, great children's books. Now we just need more book shelves! The three in the kids rooms and the two in our living room are at capacity.
