The sale will be open to the public from 6:00 to 8:00 pm on Friday, Dec. 3. Members of the Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library will be admitted an hour early at 5 pm. Shoppers who join the Friends or renew their membership at the door will also be admitted early. No minimum dues amount is required.
Complimentary gift wrapping will be offered opening night, while supplies last.
Sale hours will be from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm on Saturday, Dec. 4 and from 12:00 pm until 3:00 pm on Sunday, Dec. 5.
Beginning on Dec. 7, the sale will continue for the rest of December in the Friends’ Bookstore. This is located on the second floor of the Library, which is open Tuesday through Saturday.
Titles ranging from coffee table and oversize books on art, architecture, and travel, to classics, children’s books, cookbooks, and the latest novels and nonfiction will be sold at the once-a-year event. A selection of vintage and collectible books will also be on display.
“We have been setting aside the ‘cream of the crop’ books from donations throughout the year,” said Marcia Sainer, who organized the sale along with Bookstore volunteer Donna Potts and co-chairs Karen Bell and Karen Weinstock.
Books will be sold at a fraction of the list price. Many are priced as low as $4. Purchases can be made by cash, check or—for purchases over $10—by credit card.
All books have been donated by the public and sale proceeds will go to the South Pasadena Public Library.
