Looking to stock your shelves with new stacks of books?
The Menlo Park Friends of the Library will be hosting its fall quarter book sale this weekend from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24, and from noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 25.
The event will take place at the Menlo Park Library at 800 Alma St. in two areas: in front of the library, and in the library's basement.
According to Steve Haas, president of Menlo Park Friends of the Library, the agency raises funds for the library with its quarterly large-scale book sales, regular sales at the inside corner bookstore of the library, and online Amazon book sales.
The group also sets out free books every Wednesday in front of the library that visitors are encouraged to take.
About 98 percent of book sale proceeds go to the library, and the remaining 2 percent covers the expenses of the volunteer group, which has about 50 active members, he said.
The last book sale of the year is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
