Book Sale Starts Tonight


Coming up this weekend is the 38th annual used-book sale put on by Friends of the Library to benefit our community’s library system. Each year the event attracts hundreds of book lovers and raises thousands of dollars for the Alameda Free Library system.

The sale starts with a special preview event tonight (Friday, Oct. 18) from 6:30-9 p.m. at the Al DeWitt Officers’ Club, 641 W. Redline Avenue, Alameda Point. The entry fee is $5.

It continues from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, when admission is free.

From 12-4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20, books will be sold at special discount prices, with shoppers able to buy an entire box of books for around $5.
