It’s October, and that means it’s time to head to Alameda Point — to the Al DeWitt Officers’ Club at 641 West Redline Ave. — and go book shopping.
The Friends of the Alameda Free Library says it takes 800–1000 boxes of used books to every sale, so there are hundreds of items in every category. Most books are priced between 50¢ and $2.00.
This is a three-day event, October 16-18. There’s a preview sale on Friday evening from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., and admission is $5 admission. The shopping on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. is free, as is Sunday’s clearance sale from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
During the clearance sale, you can get one bag of used books for $3, two bags for $5 and 1 box for $4.
It’s a book-lover’s paradise.
And for those looking to donate books to the cause, come by the Alameda Free Library on Mondays.
