We’re having an Overstock BOGO Sale on hardcover fiction this week. Buy any $1.00 hardcover fiction in the store and get a second book (of equal or lesser value) free. By fiction we mean the books that are shelved in our general fiction areas. This sale doesn’t include mystery, science fiction, romance or Christian fiction, all of those books are shelved by those specific categories.
Mark your calendar! The fall Bag-of-Books Sale will be held on Saturday, October 3. The sale will be held in the Van Deusen Room on the third floor of Central Library. The sale starts at 9:00 a.m. and concludes at 3:30.
This sale will feature all the old regulars - fiction ( both hard cover and paperback) romance, science fiction, assorted non fiction, children's books and various audio/visual materials. We will have a lot of music CDs. Everything is 10 cents each or only $2.00 for a grocery-sized bag full of books.
We will have paper bags that you can fill, but I encourage you to bring a sturdy reusable bag that won't tear apart as you carry home your treasures.We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 10/3/15. Call 269.553.7820 with questions.
We received a donation of charming vintage sheet music for piano. These are tunes that were popular, from the 1920’s or 30’s until slightly after WWII. You’ll find composers like Berlin, Gershwin, and Porter and songs made popular by singers like Bing Crosby, Rudy Vallee, and Judy Garland. Some of it may be collectible, I don’t know. I do know that there are some great old songs and some really entertaining sheet music covers. If this is the kind of things that interests you, be sure and take a look at these while you have the chance.
"Hot Picks" are books that are in high demand, in other words, popular, best sellers that everyone wants to get their hands on. We have some great Hot Picks in the store this week. For only $3.00 you can take home a book by Jane Smiley, Dennis Lehane or one of the many other best selling authors in our Hot Picks collection.
For the next 2 weeks we are inviting teachers, homeschoolers and other educators to shop our special collection of children's books and teaching materials. Any educator is eligible to receive 20% off on all materials bought for the classroom or for educational purposes. Tell the volunteers at the counter and you will get 20% off your purchase.
We have a collection of art books that is definitely worthy of a trip downtown! And - if you are interested in books about Michigan, Kalamazoo or other Michigan communities - you'll want to look through the cart full of local interest books.
I spent the last 3 days vacationing in Harbor Springs. I'm having a little trouble getting back on track from our holiday routine. Luckily (for me and you) we have some pretty incredible volunteers that worked really hard (nothing new there) to get the store ready to open today. It's all stocked with lots of "new" books, CDs and DVDs. We have spotlights on Art, Cooking and Literature. Come on in and see what's new.
We have a very nice selection of art books this week as well as lots of great literature and poetry. We also have a really good selection of best-selling popular fiction.
This week we have lots of great literature and a really fine selection of poetry. Those of you that have been checking our railroad and train shelf well be happy to know that it is no longer empty. We now have a very nice, but small selection of train books. Of course, as always, we put out lots of "new" books in almost every category.
The sale continues on music CDs this week..... and to tempt you even more we've added DVDs to the sale. All single CDs and DVDs are only $1.00 each this week! And Christmas in July continues also.
