(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Public Library will hold a gigantic book sale at the central branch on May 25 and 26 between 9am and 5pm. 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 WPL is encouraging everyone to pick up a plastic bag and fill it with books for only $2, or fill a cardboard box for $5. The library will supply the bags and boxes.
Fiction is by far the largest genre for sale, but biographies, history, 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books and DVDs are for sale because of a de-selection process which has made them surplus to need or classified them as out-of-date. Additionally, donated items not needed are also for sale. Books will be sorted by subject.
This year there is a large selection of materials in Arabic, Chinese, Croatian, German, Hungarian, Italian, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish and Urdu. There will also be a number of large print books available.
All proceeds from the sale will go to purchase new library materials.
