Adult Fiction Book Sale

We’ve been weeding again…  We finally got around to a light once over the last half of the alphabet in the Adult Fiction collection.

  • Books get weeded for a variety of reasons… most commonly due to currency, relevancy, redundancy, condition and/or duplication… but also sometimes because they just aren’t popular enough anymore to justify the shelf space.

The books we’ve just weeded are available for sale… generally 50 cents for a paperback, and $1 for a hardcover… but we do make deals for bulk purchases and/or based on the condition of the book.

  • All funds collected go back into collection development and/or fun stuff for the Library.

Find a list of the titles we’ve pulled in the attached PDF file.

See something you like?  Have the student in your house come and get it, OR, drop by the Library on Saturday during the SESAT Winter Craft Fair and Silent Auction.
