There is still time to clean out your shelves and head on down to the Friends of the Alameda Free Library spring used-book sale.
The group sells about 1,000 boxes of donated books each May and October to support our libraries; it holds the sale at the DeWitt O’Club, 641 W. Red Line Ave., and books go from $0.50 to $3 each.
The sale is now set for the weekend of May 16-18 and recently was pushed back from May 2-4.
Tickets for Friday night’s preview sale, to be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on May 16, are $5.
On Saturday, May 17, entrance is free from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
During the clearance sale from 12 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 18, booklovers can buy a bag of used books for $3 or a box full of old tomes for $5.
