Two-day book sale at Menlo Park Library

The Friends of the Menlo Park Library will hold a two-day book sale Saturday and Sunday, June 15 and 16, at the library in the Menlo Park Civic Center.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, a portion of the sale will be located outside on the brick patio near the library's main entrance at 800 Alma St. It will feature the most popular categories, such as children's and young adult books, VHS tapes, DVDs and music CDs.

The downstairs meeting room at the library will house autobiographies, biographies, collectibles/special books, science fiction/fantasy, history and literature, mystery, religion, philosophy, and more.

On the second day of the sale, from noon to 2 p.m., all merchandise, upstairs and downstairs, will be either half-price or part of the $5 bag sale.

The Menlo Park Friends group, which conducted the first book fair on the Peninsula in 1952, has replaced its annual book fair with quarterly book sales, two of which are two-day events, according to Tim Goode of the Friends.

Proceeds from the sales go directly to the Menlo Park main library and the Belle Haven branch library.
