Hey kids (of all ages)! And your parents and grandparents too!
Twice each year, we hold one of the largest charity book sales in the United States right here in Ithaca. It's time for the second weekend of the Friends of the Tompkins County Public Library's Fall book sale, this Saturday, Sunday and Monday, October 19-21, from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm each day. Our volunteers have spent all week restocking the shelves in our Children's Corner, and they're filled again with thousands of cool books, fun games, confounding puzzles, catchy music and exciting movies for kids. We also have a huge selection of books on parenting and family life, and lots of educational materials, craft and hobby books, photo and art instruction, song books and sheet music, posters and more for the whole family.
We've lowered our prices for the second weekend -- $0.75 to $2.50 Saturday, and they decrease each day after that. (Since kids are extra special to us, our children's books are even cheaper than the books for adults!)
All the money we raise goes to support the Tompkins County Public Library, the Finger Lakes Library System, and local organizations promoting literacy in our area. Come on out, stock up on cool stuff and help support our community libraries!
It's easy to find us: just look for our big blue warehouse at 509 Esty St., just off Route 13. Free parking is available in our lot directly across from the building, or on the surrounding side streets. Or ride your bike down and take advantage of our bike racks!
*** IMPORTANT: PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN BOXES AND BAGS! ***
(We have a large but limited supply.)
The sale will wrap up next week, October 26-29. Get full hours, price schedules, and lots more information on our website at www.booksale.org. See you at the book sale!
