Readers have one more reason to be thankful when the Friends of Oshkosh Public Library hold a used book sale on Tuesday, Nov. 24, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., in the lower level of the Oshkosh Public Library. Don’t miss this opportunity to stock your bookshelves, stuff your stockings and start preparing for the holiday season during the final sale of 2009.
The Friends have craft books and cookbooks to help plan holiday festivities. Peruse the large selection of biographies to find the story of that public figure you’ve always admired. Browse through the ever-changing selection of fiction, mysteries and paperbacks for a good winter read. Bargain hunters will want to check out the 25 cent comics (still in their packages) and the end-of-season Bargain Book Bags.
A special collection, donated recently by a local horse enthusiast, features books about raising, riding and showing horses. And readers interested in the classics will find some new additions to the sale as well.
Sales for 2010 are scheduled on Jan. 26, March 30, May 25, July 27, Sept. 28 and Nov. 30.
The Friends Store, located on first floor near the checkout desk, will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the day of the sale. Members of the Friends also will be in the library lobby selling OCM Cards from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with proceeds used to support Oshkosh Public Library programs and activities.
