(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Public Library main branch is holding a gigantic book sale on March 13 and 14, from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm, and on March 15, from 1:30 to 4:30 pm. There will be thousands of titles to choose from, covering all genres of reading and viewing tastes.
Hardcover books and trade paperbacks will be priced at $2 with mass market and small paperbacks at $1. But everyone is encouraged to pick up a plastic bag, which will be supplied, and fill it with books for only $5.
Audio cassettes and DVDs are priced at $2, car service manuals at $2, and magazines at 50 cents.
Fiction is by far the largest genre for sale, but biographies, history, cookbooks, self-help, and how-to items will also be available. The books and DVDs are for sale because of a de-selection process which has made them surplus to the needs of the library. Additionally, donated items not needed are also for sale.
In past years, the Windsor Public Library has scheduled sales throughout the year at all branches but, after listening to customer suggestions, the library is hosting a large sale, providing the opportunity for as many members of the community as possible to explore all of the titles available for purchase.
All proceeds from the sale will go to purchase new library materials and suggestion boards will be set up around the sale area asking the community to share what new materials they’d like to see at WPL.
