Bookstore News November 29 - December 2

We still have tons of gift-quality books and we sell gift certificates too! We make your holiday shopping easy!

Annual Gift Book Sale - November 24

Have you started thinking about your holiday shopping plans? Any time is a good time to shop at the Friends Bookstore, but our annual Gift Books Sale may be the very best time of all. The sale begins on Friday, November 24 at 10:00 in the store.

All year we set aside interesting, desirable, contemporary and classic books in pristine condition for our Gift Book Sale. These are books you could currently buy at a retail bookstore. The wonderful thing is that, starting on November 24, you can buy these books at the Friends Bookstore for a fraction of what you would pay retail.

Mark your calendar for Friday, November 24. Don’t feel bad if you can’t come on Friday. We have lots of books and will be refilling our carts regularly. The sale continues while supplies last.

Friends Bookstore - DVDs, CDs, and Audio Book Sale

We are holding another 4th Saturday Sale (October 28). Due to a continuing abundance of DVDs, CDs, and books on CDs we are lowering the prices on those items this Saturday, during normal store hours from 10:00 to 4:00.

DVDs and audio books will be $1.00 (usually $2.50 and $2.00) and CDs (usually $1.00) will be going for 50 cents each. I think we have a better than usual selection of CDs – come see for yourself!
