Published on Thursday, September 15, 2016 | 11:32 am

The Friends of the Sierra Madre Library announce that the October Best Used Book Sale will be held Friday, October 7 (3-7 p.m.) and Saturday, October 8 (10 a.m. – 2 p.m.).

Featured in the basement at this sale we will have a wonderful collection of books on exploration and exotic travels. The Sale will also have complete sets of Winston Churchill’s World War II series and the Durants’ The Story of Civilization. Another wonderful set available is The Imperial Dictionary of Universal Biography, published in England in 1880. It is described as “a series of original memoirs of distinguished men of all ages and all nations.” The entries include notables of the past, including some from the nineteenth century, with beautiful engravings. Check out some of our other wonderful vintage books, too.

As always, the basement will have nearly new fiction and non-fiction titles, DVDs, audio books, and some “Dickens’ Village” lighted buildings suitable for holiday decorating.

In the parking lot will be the popular Bargain Books for only $1.00 and will include both fiction and nonfiction. Children’s and Teen books in the parking lot will be selling from .25 to $1.00 each. We also will have a collection of sets suitable for classroom or book groups. Small paperbacks are .25 each or 5/$1.00.

The Friends of the Sierra Madre Library is a non-profit organization and all proceeds benefit the Sierra Madre Library. For more information visit them on Facebook, or, or call the library at (626) 355-7186.

The sale will be held in the basement and the parking lot behind the library at 440 West Sierra Madre Blvd. Come and talk books with the volunteers from the Friends.
