Book Sale Photo - kid o infoTwenty thousand used books, audiovisuals, puzzles sorted into over fifty categories will be available. These have all been donated by generous East Side neighbors. Hardcovers, software and audiovisuals are $1 each. Paperbacks and children’s books are 50¢. Specials and Rarities are priced individually as marked.

At last year’s book sale one of my friends scored a mint condition of “Owl Babies” board book for her son, a paperback set of Laura Ingalls Wilder books for her daughter and a first edition lithograph copy of “Happiness is a Warm Puppy” by Charles Schulz which is now a family favorite. Total purchase: $2. Less than the cost of a cup of coffee!
