Hundreds of books, CDs on sale at Woodside Library book sale Nov. 4

Original post made by Richard Hine, editor of The Almanac, on Oct 18, 2006

If you like bargains, the upcoming Woodside Library book sale is the place for you.
On Saturday, Nov. 4, hundreds of gently used books, CDs, DVDs, video and audio tapes will be on sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine.
Paperback books will be priced at 25 cents, with most hardbacks and other materials going for $1 each. Some special collections will sell for more such as encyclopedia sets.
Friends of the Library Board member Susan Flint has been watching the piles of books grow as they have been donated by patrons over the last six months.
She says there are three boxes of Archie and Veronica comic books available, plus lots of Civil War and Colonial American history books, a personal library of Robinson Jeffers books, and a good number of foreign language books, particularly German, Spanish and French.
These books are in addition to the regular wide selection of bestsellers, travel, self-help, cookbooks, and children’s books.
All proceeds go toward the Friends to support speakers, children’s programs, and new book acquisitions at the library.
Woodside Library is located at 3140 Woodside Road, Woodside.
