Almost 100,000 hardbacks, paperbacks, DVDs, CDs and records will be on sale at prices ranging from 25¢ to $2. Net proceeds from the Book Sale benefit the Plano Public Library System.
At prices like that, you can buy books to your heart’s content without breaking the budget. Just remember: you’ll have to cover the cost of that extra storage unit yourself.
The book sale runs Friday, August 4, from 6 to 10 p.m., with an admission fee of $5 for individuals and $10 for families. Members of the Friends of the Plano Public Library enjoy free, early admission at 5 p.m. on Friday night, as well as a 10% discount on all purchases on any day of the Book Sale. (Shoppers may obtain a Friends membership online at www.friendsofplanolibrary.org or at the sale.) Admission is free on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Sunday hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. An extra Sunday incentive includes special pricing for all merchandise at $10 for a bag of books (and the Friends supply the bags)!
