Book lovers, heed this call. The Friends of the Fort Worth Public Library is having its Biannual Book Sale on three weekends in April and May. Guess it means that we have three fantastic opportunities to add some fine books to our libraries. Choose from thousands of books, CDs, and DVDs with most items priced 50 cents to a dollar fifty.
There is a “Members Only Tax-Free Sale Day” this coming Saturday, April 16, 9 am until 4 pm at the Book Store, 5332 Trail Lake Drive, Wedgewood Village, just south of Loop 820 and Trail Lake. You’ll pay only 1/2 price in the book store. Not a member? It’s easy to join or renew your membership at the door. Seniors pay $20, if Annie is not mistaken.
Sale days to the public in the Chapter 2 Annexes, 5314 and 5318 Trail Drive, are April 22-24 and Saturday May 7. If you’re not a member, there is a $1 admission charge per day.
There’ll be a Garage Sale at the Book Store Annexes on Saturday, May 7, 9 am through 4 pm. Fixtures and gift items from the warehouse will be sold plus another $15 a box day on remaining books. Sunday, April 24, noon until 4 pm is the first $15 a box day with boxes provided.
If your bookshelves are already packed to overflowing, go through your books and donate some to make room for your new purchases. You’ll get a tax deduction slip for the IRS at the Main Desk, and the Friends will have more books to sell.
